Beginning last year, the Permanent Fund Dividend (PFD) program was approved in Alaska. Thanks to this program, some North American residents receive up to $3,284.00 USD directly. It is valid to clarify that $662.00 USD of this amount appears to be part of the integrated payment for energy relief. In other words, $662.00 USD is not subject to taxes, as the rest is considered taxable income.
The first checks for this financial relief have been received from September 2022. So, most of the eligible people have already received their money.
However, there is also a case where residents of the state of Alaska were listed as “ineligible” on June 7. In the current week they will receive $3284.00 USD.
How do these payments work?
The state government decided to split the profits among Alaskans because of the oil and gas revenue the area generated.
For his part, Governor Mike Dunleavy explained that this economic benefit will help pay for fuel, food, medical bills, car repairs and rent.
First, interested parties must submit an application, which can be received on paper or electronically. By the way, this amount represents the largest that has been issued in the history of the state of Alaska.
Hyperinflation in the US is no secret to the adverse effects it has had on the people there. Therefore, it is very important that these types of donations help as many people as possible.
In this sense, the money reached a total of 644,000 people in North America, according to local government data.
Additionally, considering the current critical situation, the central bank has implemented some strategies. These are aimed at reducing inflation in the US.
