Making Payments

Contributor Payments

Each month, USAC generates an invoice to bill those who contribute to the universal service fund (called contributors) for their contribution obligation based on revenues reported on their FCC Forms 499-A/Q. To learn more about filers and contributors, visit the Who Must File webpage.

The following schedule provides the date that USAC will mail invoices to contributors as well as the date that payments are due in the coming quarter.

When submitting payments to USAC, please include the top portion of the invoice (the remittance portion) and follow the payment instructions on our website. If you need to keep the original invoice, send USAC a copy. In the absence of the invoice remittance portion, USAC still needs to receive the Filer ID and invoice number for each payment to apply these funds correctly.

If paying for multiple Filer IDs, either check the box on the front of the remittance portion and complete the worksheet provided on the back of the first page of the invoice, or use the Payment Identification Form. When paying electronically, you may email the information to Collections.

To request a copy of your invoice, see the Request Invoice Copy web page.
