Understanding Invoices

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. The invoice includes information to help contributors understand how the invoice charges were generated. USAC issues a number of different types of invoices:
  • Contributor Invoices begin with “UBDI”
  • Negative Disbursement Invoices begin with “NGXX” (where XX represents the program)
  • Payment Plan Invoices begin with “PMTP”

Payments towards USF invoices must be made in a timely manner to avoid delinquency actions such as late fees. In cases where a contributing company believes that it has been invoiced in error, please contact USAC's Customer Operations at (888) 641-8722.

Request a Copy

To request a copy of your invoice, email Customer Operations with the following information included in the body of the email:

  • Requestor's name
  • Filer ID
  • Date of statement

Please note that if your name is not listed on the current FCC Form 499-Q, FCC Form 499-A, or current invoice, USAC cannot provide you with a copy of an invoice. If you are listed on one of these forms, and you include the above information, you should receive a copy of your invoice via email within 24-48 hours of the time the request was received by USAC.
