How to Pay

Make a Payment to the Universal Service Fund

If you’re an active contributor to the Universal Service Fund (USF), log in to E-File and select Payments to make a payment on your account.

USF payments are due on the 15th of each month. If the 15th falls on a weekend or holiday, payments are due on the preceding business day.

We can no longer accept checks or direct wire transfers. You must now set up your payment in E-File. From there, you can either pay online (direct debit or credit card) or set up an ACH transfer from your bank.
