Every year in the third week of September, each Alaskan waits in anticipation for an official announcement. And for the past two years, we cringed every time that came. Primarily because it didn't apply to us since after all....we really weren't considered Alaskans yet. At least by the state Pipeline Fund Dividend board. However, we are on the other side of the fence this year, so we have been eagerly awaiting. Early speculation was coming in with all of the, super calibrated calculated percentile flowchart calculus genius guesswork, at $1500.00. Then some self proclaimed financial guru low balled at $1100.00. But, the official amount announced by Governor Parnell is going to be.....$1305.00 per Alaskan resident.
When asked what we will do now that we have won 'residency' in Alaska and the combined $2,610.00 PFD.... "we're going to Disneyland!"
