NOTICE: On December 1, 2021, pursuant to a Public Notice , the FCC decommissioned and permanently discontinued its in-house online electronic payment system for regulatory and other fees, effective December 15, 2021. The online electronic payment systems include: the electronic FCC Remittance Advice Form 159, the Fee Filer Online System, the Red Light Display (RLD) system, and the Universal Licensing System (ULS) Pay Fees system.

Per that Public Notice, you are being re-directed to the FCC's updated Commission Registration System (CORES) where you may perform these same functions. The FCC will now only accept funds through CORES.

The FCC will also soon require an FCC Username to access CORES. Therefore, if you do not already have an FCC Username registered and activated, please go to the FCC User Registration system here to receive and activate your FCC Username. We encourage all FCC Registration Number (FRN) managers to access and manage their FRNs in the updated CORES with an FCC Username. For instructions on associating and managing FRNs in CORES, please refer to the help link. In the interim, as a temporary measure, the FCC's Office of Financial Operations is allowing limited access to CORES with a user's Payer FRN. Users can complete the following payment transactions with a Payer FRN:

  • All Remittances Awaiting Payment Completion
  • ULS Fees (batch filers)
  • Annual Regulatory Fees
  • View and Pay Open Bills
  • Application Fees
  • View Red/Green Light Status
