Remember that the government pays you to come to Alaska. All you have to do is to join the military and then ask for Alaska as your home-base

Currently, I receive a monthly check from the state of Alaska in the amount of $2,935.78 -- tax free. It'll go up 7% per year to keep up with inflation.

In return, I had to sign an agreement to stay in Alaska for at least ten years. I also had to agree to marry an Alaskan native and produce seven kids within that ten year time frame.

If I fail to live up to my end of the bargain, I'll have to repay all the money, along with interest.

All-in-all, not a bad deal. All deals with the state are negotiable. Good luck with yours.

Does every person in the househols get a stipend or is it just one stipend per household? Also, If a man is in the army and he is living on base in Alaska with his wife and two children but has a son who lives in New York will he still get a stipend for that child even though the child does not live in Alaska??

Yes, if YOU are living in Alaska then all your seedlings and offspring get the stipend. That's one of the reasons so MANY polygamist families move to Alaska. With the number of offspring they produce they make serious bank. Most of them don't even need to work anymore.

First of all, it is not a "stipend", it is a dividend. Every man, woman, and child who qualifies receives a dividend check once a year (in October), and amount will vary.

With regard to the military, your residency status is determined by your "Home of Record" with the military. Unless you had it changed, your "Home of Record" is the state where you originally enlisted. Only if your "Home of Record" is Alaska could you qualify for the Permanent Fund Dividend checks. It does not matter if you have been stationed in Alaska for a decade, if your "Home of Record" with the military is Kansas, for example, you will not qualify for a PFD check.

The State web site can explain it in more detail.

The son in New York would likely not qualify. There is a requirement to be present in the state for some period and only some absences are allowed.
