New Per Capita Advance Policy Announced

The Prairie Band Potawatomi Nation has created a new policy that will allow eligible PBPN tribal members to receive an interest-free, advance payment on quarterly per capita distributions up to two times per calendar year.

The Per Capita Advance Policy was created to assist eligible PBPN tribal members in need of temporary financial assistance and goes into effect on Thursday, August 1, 2019. Interested members will be required to complete an application and pay a $25 administrative fee for the service.

Eligible PBPN tribal members will be allowed to request up to a $1,000 advance on the next scheduled per capita distribution. The member shall then repay that amount within the next three per capita distribution dates or sooner.

Eligible PBPN tribal members shall be age 18 or older and have no delinquent debt owed to the Nation.

For questions regarding the new policy, PBPN tribal members can call toll-free 877-715-6789 and connect to the Per Capita office.

Both documents are available on the Per Capita webpage, located under Departments> Member Services> Per Capita or
