Alaskans, begin the countdown: the state will should begin disbursing Permanent Fund Dividend checks in less than 100 hours.

PFD recipients who applied for direct deposit should see a check for $878 hit their bank accounts early Thursday, Oct. 4. For those who qualified for a check but did not opt for direct deposit, the state of Alaska will begin mailing checks to your address on record with the state.

Check your mailing address at the My Alaska web portal.
