Eligible residents can sign up for PFDs starting tomorrow

Starting tomorrow eligible Alaskans can start signing up for the 2014 Permanent Fund Dividend.

The application period for PFD checks starts tomorrow and goes through March 31st.

People can apply both online and in person at PFD distribution centers.

Last year the Permanent Fund Dividend checks of 900 dollars were distributed in October, one of the lowest amounts seen in PFD history.

The money for the checks comes from the state’s oil-wealth savings account and the state started distributing the checks in the 80s.
