December 28, 2007
(SitNews) - The 2008 PFD application period opens January 1,
2008, at 12:01 a.m. To encourage more Alaskans to apply online,
the PFD Division is continuing its Early Direct Deposit option.
Applicants who apply online in January and select and qualify
for direct deposit will be paid on October 2, 2008. All other
eligible applicants who select and qualify for direct deposit
will be paid on October 16, 2008. The PFD Division will begin
mailing checks to all other eligible applicants November 14,
Every Alaskan can apply online for their 2008 PFD. Alaskans
who register for a myAlaska account can electronically sign their
PFD application through the state's myAlaska program. Visit

a myAlaska account now.
Any adult who received a 2007 PFD can set up a myAlaska account
to eSign their application with an Alaska driver's license or
an Alaska ID. Adults with a myAlaska account can also apply
online and electronically sign their children's' PFD applications.
Alaskans who already have a myAlaska account do not need to
set up another account. Applicants who do not wish to use an
electronic signature can still apply online and mail a printed
signature page to the PFD Division.
PFD Division Director Debbie Richter said, "The online application
process is a "win" in every way for applicants. It
is more secure than mail, provides immediate confirmation of
filing, and allows January filers with direct deposit to receive
their dividends earlier. We are hoping for at least 470,000 online
filers this year."
According to PFD Division Manager Amy Skow, in 2007 the Division
received 420,596 online applications, two thirds of the total
629,000 valid applications received for the 2007 PFD. Skow estimates
that the Division will receive more online applications during
2008, and she encourages Alaskans to discover for themselves
the convenience of signing electronically.
Division staff in the Anchorage, Fairbanks and Juneau Offices
can assist those wanting to set up a myAlaska electronic signature
account. Alaskans without computer access may apply online using
public computers available in the PFD Offices, at public libraries
and at Legislative Information Offices.
The 2008 PFD application period runs from January 1 through March
31, 2008. The online application will be available at 12:01
am on January 1, 2008. The 2008 dividend amount will be announced
