What It Means For Everyone in Alaska Who is Now $1,884 Richer!
If the wild frontier and cool weather aren’t enticing enough, our permanent Alaska residents are at least $1,884 richer as the Alaska Permanent Fund rolls out checks to many eligible residents. Almost all residents – babies included – received the payment. If you have a family of four, that is an additional $7,536 that you woke up to yesterday. The dollar amount varies year to year, and in 2008 was as high as $3,269 per person.
In short it is an annual dividend, that stems from oil revenue. Many people use this money to provide for their family, take a trip, give back to their community or even invest in the ever-growing Alaska real estate market. Just remember, from year to year the return on real estate proves to be the best long term investment. While home prices and the market may show fluctuations, over time it consistently is the most trusted return on investment – over that of stocks as well.
