USAC invoices are generated monthly with a due date of the 15th. If the 15th is a weekend or holiday, then the payment due date is moved to the prior business day. USAC can only apply payments to the appropriate account with information provided by the contributing company. In the absence of complete payment information, USAC may be unable to apply the payment in a timely manner. It is important to include the USAC Filer ID on all payments made to USAC in order to avoid late processing of your payment or late payment sanctions.
Common Issues When Paying Invoices:
- Late Payments, DCIA, and Red Light - Delinquent invoices are subject to late payment fees under the Debt Collection Improvement Act (DCIA) and may cause a disbursement to be netted or withheld in accordance with the Red Light Rule.
- Requesting Payment Plans - If you are financially unable to pay the full amount of your invoice, you may request an installment payment agreement.
- Mergers, Sales, and Deactivations - Companies that have been sold, merged, consolidated, gone out of business, gone bankrupt, or no longer provide telecom services must take certain actions to deactivate their accounts.
If you are ready to submit your payment to USAC, please review the Payment Instructions page under the Making Payments section. Please review the sample invoice for more information.
