If you want to expedite PFD deposit process, you can deposit your PFD quickly and easily by using the Alaska USA app.

You can also deposit your PFD check by using a deposit drop box or a depository ATM. To deposit your PFD check in-person, visit any branch. The drop boxes are checked several times a day.

Simply show a teller at any Alaska USA branch your picture id proving you are the parent or legal guardian of the child. 

If your last name is different than your child’s, you will need to provide a legal document (such as a birth certificate or court document) to the teller confirming the parental or guardianship relationship.
