If you are planning a move in the near future, you may want to pack your thermals and move to the frosty, but ever so beautiful, State of Alaska.
Not only will you enjoy breathtaking scenery, friendly people and superb career growth, the state also pays its residents $2,000 per year to live there!
According to Reader’s Digest permanent residents who opt into the state’s Permanent Fund Dividend Division can receive an annual check of approximately $2,000.
To qualify residents must not have a felony record, have lived in Alaska for a year, and remain physically in the state for at least 185 days.
Alaska also has some of the lowest taxes in the whole country and no state sales tax.
