Anchorage, Alaska – Dec. 20, 2013 – The Trustees of the NANA Elders’ Settlement Trust voted to issue a $1,000 per Elder distribution for 2013. The Trust was established by NANA in 2008 to provide a modest, yet needed, special distribution to NANA shareholders who are 65 years of age or older.
“It is part of our Iñupiat Iḷitqusiat Values to honor our Elders,” said Ronald Moto, NANA Elders’ Settlement Trust chairman. “The Elders’ Settlement Trust is our way of giving back to those who have given so much to our region and our people.”
The distribution is not taxable. Elders who are receiving the 2013 distribution should take note of this fact.
The NANA Elders’ Settlement Trust distribution will have a Record Date of Jan. 1, 2014 and a Payment Date of on or about Jan. 15, 2014.
