Goodbye Mainland – Hello Alaska!

Planning a move to the Last Frontier can be both exciting and stressful. It’s exciting in that you’re moving to not just any state, but to Alaska – untamed beauty and countless adventures await! It’s stressful in that the move requires a bit more planning than just a regular state to state move. You’re definitely going to need a moving company to get there, but what about a passport?

PCSing to Alaska: Military Life in the Last Frontier

So you have orders to PCS to Alaska, the “Last Frontier.” Sounds like an exciting new adventure. You start thinking about your options for getting all your household goods 4,000 miles north. 

You could go with a full-service military move with all arrangements made by the TMO office. Seems convenient, but the goods may not arrive for 6-8 weeks. And, in peak moving season, you could be faced with movers who over-schedule and fail to show up on the scheduled loading date.

Or you could PCS to Alaska with U-Pack.

If you don’t mind earning some extra money (and doing a little extra work), that is.  With a DITY move, you make all arrangements and receive reimbursement based on the weight of your goods.

Will Alaska really pay me to move there?

 It’s time to squash the rumors that you can move to Alaska for free or get paid to move to Alaska. They're not true.

It's unfortunate, I know.

The rumors got started as a result of the state’s Permanent Fund Program, through which all of Alaska’s permanent residents (children and adults) get a little piece of the state’s oil wealth each year. Alaska has been paying out Permanent Fund dividend checks since 1982 in amounts ranging from $331 to $2,069 per person. The payout for 2013 was $900. Not bad, but still not close to 2008’s $2,069 payout (the highest yet). A person eligible for dividend checks since the program’s inception would have received $35,143.41 from the State to date.

People tend to have a lot of questions about moving to Alaska, and I’ve attempted to answer some of the most common. Let’s get started.

Is it true you can get paid to move to Alaska?
If you search message boards about moving to Alaska, you’ll see various versions of the question “can I move to Alaska for free?” over and over. The answer is “no.” This is a misconception. The state does not pay you to move to Alaska. What you’re probably thinking of is the Permanent Fund Dividend that is paid to permanent residents of Alaska each year.  Read my post “Moving to Alaska for Free?” for more detailed information.
