July 20, 2022
JUNEAU (AP) — The state plans to begin distributing this year’s oil-wealth dividend and a special energy relief payment to residents on Sept. 20.
The timeline was announced last Friday by Gov. Mike Dunleavy and the state Department of Revenue.
The combined payout for the Permanent Fund dividend and energy relief payment is estimated at around $3,200 per person; a final figure is pending. Residents will receive the money as one payment, the department said.
The energy relief payment was approved by lawmakers as a one-time benefit this year to help residents with high energy costs.
