FCC Decommissions Fee Filer Payment Module and Red Light Display System

Posted on December 30th, 2021 by

On December 15, 2021, the FCC decommissioned the Fee Filer Payment Module and Red Light Display System.

Fee Filer has been replaced with a new payment module in CORES that requires logging in with an FCC Username that is associated with the FRN of the entity for which a fee is being paid.  Regulatory and ULS fees are paid by selecting “Manage Existing FRNs” and general application fees are paid by electing “FRN Financial” where applicants can view bills, retrieve application fees or enter fees manually.  Payment options continue to include ACH and credit cards.

The Red Light Display System has been permanently discontinued.  Entities can now access their financial standing by logging in to CORES with an FCC Username and using links to determine whether their financial standing is a green or red light status.
