2019 PFD includes incentive for filing on-line

    Juneau, Alaska (KINY) - The State's Permanent Fund Dividend Division is doubling its efforts to encourage applicants to file for their 2019 dividend online.

    Director Sara Race and Administrative Operations Manager Anne Weske talked about that on Action Line.

    They've organized a campaign dubbed, "File It Faster, Get It Sooner, Take It Further."

    Weske says the online application is the fastest way to file a PFD application.  "It submits right away and most Alaskans are actually determined right away because they don't have the need for us to manually review the application."

    She says filing online and choosing direct deposit and will result in receiving the dividend during the first payment distribution which is the first Thursday of October.  

    The second payment cycle will come roughly three weeks after direct deposit day.
