Do you get paid when you move to Alaska?
There are several rumors about getting things for free in Alaska. From moving there for free to getting free land, the talk of low-cost living seems to have no end. But while those specific rumors aren’t true, it makes sense why people believe them. They began as a result of the state’s Permanent Fund Dividend (PFD) Program, where all residents receive a small portion of the state’s oil wealth each year. So while you can’t get paid to move to Alaska, you can get paid to live there.
