We made the decision to move Per-capita distribution to Saturdays hoping that it will provide better customer service for tribal members. We know that a lot of people have a hard time getting here during the middle of the week because of their jobs. We also have a lot of youth who are in school and sometimes they don’t make the right choice: they skip school to pick up their per-capita checks. We decided that we would move Per-capita to Saturday to provide that extra time so no one has to take time off from work or school. The bank is still open on Saturday, so checks can still be cashed.
