A new company that does not have a Filer ID can enter its data using E-File. Once the company completes FCC Form 499-A (Annual Telecommunications Reporting Worksheet), the company will need to print and mail an officer-signed form to be issued a Filer ID. Once USAC certifies the form using the signed copy, the contacts on the form will be issued a User ID and password for future use of the online system.
USAC encourages fund contributors to take advantage of its online submission capabilities, E-File. Once you complete the first certification process by mailing a signed copy of the form, you will be able to certify future forms online without mailing a signed copy. In addition, you will be able to quickly revise your FCC Forms 499-A/Q by pulling up your historical forms, editing and submitting your changes, and certifying them online.
Please note that a signed copy will be required again if your company changes officers. Again, once USAC certifies the form using the signed copy, the new officer will be issued a User ID and password for future use of the online system.
If you have any questions about the online system, please refer to USAC's E-File User Guide or call USAC's Customer Operations at (888) 641-8722.
