Permanent Fund Dividend
The Alaska Permanent Fund and the Permanent Fund Dividend paid to Alaskans are unique to the state. The fund and dividend were created with revenues from the oil and gas industry and continued industry contributions to the State’s treasury, in combination with a successful investment strategy, make the dividend possible.
The Alaska Permanent Fund Corporation manages the Alaska Permanent Fund while the Permanent Fund Dividend Division of the Alaska Department of Revenue manages the Permanent Fund Dividend program.
In 2015, every qualified Alaskan will receive a dividend of $2,072, for a total disbursement of $1.3 billion.
