The Permanent Fund Dividend



I have questions about my PFD    
Alaska statute 43.23 establishes a Permanent Fund Dividend program, based on income available for distribution from the Permanent Fund under Alaska Statute 37.13.140.


27 years of dividends


How the PFD amount is calculated each year

  1. Add Fund Statutory Net Income from the current plus the previous four fiscal years.
  2. Multiply by 21%
  3. Divide by 2
  4. Subtract prior year obligations, expenses and PFD program operations
  5. Divide by the number of eligible applicants
