The state of Alaska allows you to file online for your PFD. Visit the Permanent Fund Dividend Division website and file online from January 1 through March 31.
It's easy to have your PFD deposited directly into your Alaska USA account:
Watch the Permanent Fund Dividend Division website for this year's PFD amount. The amount will be announced in September.
If you have set up your PFD for direct deposit, you can watch for your PFD deposit by using the Pending ACH tool to see the deposit up to one day before the money shows in your account. After the PFD has been deposited, you can see it by going into your Account History.
To deposit your PFD check in-person, visit any branch. To receive confirmation of your deposit, present your check to a teller. If you want to get in and out quickly, you can deposit your PFD check by using a deposit drop box or a depository ATM. The drop boxes are checked several times a day. You can also deposit your PFD quickly and easily from practically anywhere with the Remote Deposit app.
In order to negotiate a PFD check mailed to your child, simply provide your picture identification as the parent or legal guardian to a teller in any Alaska USA branch.
If your last name is different from your child's, you'll need to provide a legal document showing the correlation between the two names (such as a birth certificate or court document.)
You have access to your PFD money after it has been deposited by using your Visa® Check Card or ATM card.
