Sec. 13.12.209. Sources from which elective share payable.
 (a) In a proceeding for an elective share, the following are applied first to satisfy the elective share amount and to reduce or eliminate any contributions due from the decedent’s probate estate and recipients of the decedent’s nonprobate transfers to others:
     (1) amounts included in the augmented estate under AS 13.12.204 that pass or have passed to the surviving spouse by testate or intestate succession, and amounts included in the augmented estate under AS 13.12.206; and

     (2) amounts included in the augmented estate under AS 13.12.207, up to two-thirds of the augmented estate.

 (b) If, after the application of (a) of this section, the elective share amount is not fully satisfied or the surviving spouse is entitled to a supplemental elective share amount, amounts included in the decedent’s probate estate and in the decedent’s nonprobate transfers to others, other than amounts included under AS 13.12.205(a)(3)(A) or (C), are applied first to satisfy the unsatisfied balance of the elective share amount or the supplemental elective share amount. The decedent’s probate estate and that portion of the decedent’s nonprobate transfers to others shall be applied so that liability for the unsatisfied balance of the elective share amount or for the supplemental elective share amount is equitably apportioned among the recipients of the decedent’s probate estate and of that portion of the decedent’s nonprobate transfers to others in proportion to the value of the recipients’ interests in the decedent’s probate estate and that portion of the decedent’s nonprobate transfers to others.

 (c) If, after the application of (a) and (b) of this section, the elective share or supplemental elective share amount is not fully satisfied, the remaining portion of the decedent’s nonprobate transfers to others shall be applied so that liability for the unsatisfied balance of the elective share or supplemental elective share amount is equitably apportioned among the recipients of that remaining portion of the decedent’s nonprobate transfers to others in proportion to the value of the recipients’ interests in the decedent’s nonprobate transfers to others.
