Alaska Dispatch News estimate of this year's PFD check: $2,100

Source: Alaska Dispatch News

... Alaska Dispatch News has crunched the numbers and come up with our prediction of the amount of this year's dividend check: $2,100 (give or take $50). That's about $216 more than the 2014 check of $1,884.

If correct, this year's check would be the largest ever given out (unadjusted for inflation) to qualified Alaska residents who apply for the dividend each year. The smallest check came in the dividend's third year: 1984, when recipients got just $331.29 each.

... This year, the PFD Division estimates that it has received 670,000 applications. But not everyone who applies for a dividend will get one. Each year, the PFD Division finds that many of the applicants are ineligible for dividend payments. The reasons vary but are most often a lack of residency or too much time spent Outside.

Over the fund's history, about 94.2 percent of people who applied have gotten a dividend. But a five-year average (taking the last five payout years, from 2010 to 2014) shows an acceptance rate of 92.58 percent.
