About the Service Providers

USAC makes approved disbursements from the universal service programs to service providers based on the information they provide on the FCC Form 498, Service Provider and Billed Entity Identification Number and General Contact Information Form.

The FCC Form 498 is used to collect contact and remittance information for service providers that receive support from the universal service fund programs.

This section of the site will assist service providers in managing their 498 ID (formerly known as SPIN) data, perform research on pending payments, and the impacts of billing and collections on service provider payments.
