ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - Alaskans are almost out of time to sign up for their share of the state’s oil wealth this year.

Tuesday is the deadline to apply for the 2015 Alaska Permanent Fund dividend.

The payout is based on the five-year average of the fund’s statutory net income.

Last year, the $1,884 payout distributed to Alaskans was more than double the amount of the $900 checks received in 2013, but short of the record payout of $2,069 in 2008.
