Upcoming Dates

MFA for EPC and BEAR Form Filers is Coming July 27

July 27, 2020

USAC will be adding multifactor authentication (MFA) to increase the security of Universal Service Fund (USF) IT applications. MFA helps safeguard access to data and applications, and provides additional security by requiring a second form of user authentication. This complies with both federal and FCC information security guidelines.

Starting July 27, 2020, EPC users and BEAR Form filers must first log in to One Portal (our MFA security system) to access EPC and/or the BEAR Form. For more information, refer to the June 26, 2020 edition of the SL News Brief.
