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.
