To receive money from Alaska's permanent fund dividend, you must be an Alaskan resident for at least a year. Does this imply that you must be a naturalized US citizen as well?
According to their website, the requirements for eligibility are as follows:
I was a resident of Alaska during all of calendar year 2013;
On the date I apply for the 2014 Permanent Fund Dividend, I have the intent to remain an Alaska resident indefinitely;
I have not claimed residency in any other state or country or obtained a benefit as a result of a claim of residency in another state or country at any time since December 31, 2012;
- I was not:
- Sentenced as a result of a felony conviction during 2013;
- Incarcerated at any time during 2013 as the result of a felony conviction; or
- Incarcerated at any time during 2013 as the result of a misdemeanor conviction in Alaska if convicted of a prior felony or two or more prior misdemeanors since January 1, 1997
- If absent from Alaska for more than 180 days, I was absent on an allowable absence; and
- I was physically present in Alaska for at least 72 consecutive hours at some time during 2012 or 2013.
The full regulations define a resident as (page 32):
A person establishes residency in the state by being physically present in the state with the intent to remain in the state indeﬁnitely and to make a home in the state
No mention is made of a requirement to be a US citizen in order to be eligible, implying that it is not a requirement.
