Electronic distribution of 2022 Permanent Fund Dividends will begin Sept. 20, about a month ahead of the usual payout in early October.
The first checks will go to Alaskans who selected direct deposit on their PFD applications. Those that filed a paper application or requested a paper check will be distributed starting the week of Oct. 3.
Gov. Mike Dunleavy used the July 15 announcement of early PFD checks to make another pitch for a constitutional amendment that would remove the PFD from annual political fights in Juneau and enshrine it in the state constitution.
“Alaskans deserve a constitutional amendment that protects the PFD from politicians and special interests, and sets out a funding formula we can all count on,” he stated.
