Understanding my Invoice

Remittance Statement

The top section of the first page of each invoice is the remittance portion that should be included with the payment when paying by check.

The remittance portion of an invoice includes the payment due date and the company's balance when USAC generated the invoice. If the account has any debt that is or will be over 30 days delinquent, the new balance on the invoice will not be the total amount due as the debt is incurring interest and penalties daily. Companies with delinquent debt must contact the billing department to obtain the pay-off amount that includes accrued penalties.

Example of Remittance Statement

  • Invoice Number – Unique number for each invoice
  • Statement Date – Date that the invoice was generated
  • New Balance – The balance due as of the date the invoice was generated
  • Payment Due Date – Date on or before which the balance indicated on this invoice needs to be paid
  • Amount Enclosed – Area for accounts payable to enter the amount being paid with this remittance statement
  • Mail Payment To – Address to which the payment must be mailed

If you are making a payment for multiple Filer 499 IDs, either check the box on the front of the remittance slip and complete the worksheet provided on the back of the first page of the invoice or use our Payment Identification Worksheet and mail the completed form in the same envelope with your remittance statement and payment. If paying electronically, you may email the information to collections.

To change your billing contact information, companies may submit either an FCC Form 499-A or FCC Form 499-Q or email the billing department. To request the payoff amount, including daily interest and penalties for the outstanding balance on an account on a specific date, send a request via email to request the payoff amount.
