This was when most eligible residents received their Permanent Fund dividend. This year's amount is $1,281.

The annual dividend is paid from investment earnings from the state's $35.7-billion savings account.

Nearly 641,600 Alaskans will receive dividends of the 668,000 who applied. Most amounts were paid Thursday through direct deposit.
