After the service provider and applicant sign a service agreement, the applicant will submit an FCC Form 462, Funding Request Form. Once the funding request has been reviewed and approved, USAC will issue the Funding Commitment Letter (FCL). The FCL informs the applicant and service provider that the applicant is eligible for the support specified in the letter.
Service providers should validate the 498 ID (formerly known as SPIN) on the FCL to ensure the support amount is being credited to the correct 498 ID. If the 498 ID is incorrect, the service provider should contact the RHC Help Desk at (800) 453-1546, or via email.
