Apply for Your 2010 PFD Starting
December 30, 2009
The 2010 PFD application period opens January 1, 2010, at 12:01
A.M. Filing is easy! Either go online to www.pfd.alaska.gov
or obtain paper application forms in your community. If the division
received a paper application from your household address in 2009,
you will receive a packet which includes applications and the
list of statewide distribution sites where additional forms and
instructions can be obtained. A list of the 275 distribution
sites are available by using the online lookup tool on the PFD
While you may apply either on paper or online, online filing
is the fastest way to submit your 2010 PFD application. Every
qualified Alaskan, including first time filers, can apply for
their PFD online or on paper. First time online filers will need
to print and mail a signature page to complete their application.
Any adult who received a 2009 PFD can set up a myAlaska account,
using information from an Alaska driver's license or an Alaska
ID, to electronically sign their or their children's application.
Alaskans with 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. Visit www.pfd.alaska.gov
to learn more about the electronic signature option or to set
up a myAlaska account now.
According to PFD Operations Manager Dan DeBartolo, in 2009 the
Division received 487,250 online applications, 75% of the nearly
652,000 on time and valid applications received for the 2009
PFD. DeBartolo encourages all Alaskans to discover for themselves
the convenience of applying for a PFD electronically.
PFD Division Director Debbie Bitney said, "Although filing
online is the most common method and provides immediate confirmation
of receipt, we realize that it is not for everyone. We are placing
the paper application forms in every community and mailing them
to household addresses where residents preferred the paper option
in 2009. Through a statewide media campaign, we are helping all
Alaskans remember to file."
Division staff in the Anchorage, Fairbanks and Juneau Offices
can assist in applying online or setting up a myAlaska account.
Alaskans may apply using computers available in the PFD Offices,
public libraries, Legislative Information Offices, and Community
Distribution sites with public computer access.
The 2010 PFD application period runs from January 1 through March
31, 2010. The online application will be available at 12:00:01
A.M. on January 1, 2010. The 2010 dividend amount will be announced
late September, and paid to eligible Alaskans on October 7, 2010.
