One of the most anticipated events of the fall for many Alaskans is just around the corner, the announcement of the 2015 Permanent Fund Dividend amount.

The announcement will be made at 10:00 a.m. on Monday, according to the office of Governor Bill Walker.

Last year’s dividend check was $1,884.  Many expect this year’s payout to Alaskan residents to be higher.

The Alaska Dispatch News and KTUU both estimate dividends in the area of $2,100.
