About FUSF Exemption

Verizon applies a Federal Universal Service Fund (FUSF) Surcharge to recover its Universal Service contribution obligations.

Verizon customers may use this electronic FUSF surcharge exemption certification process to identify themselves as direct contributors to the Federal Universal Service Fund and therefore exempt from Verizon's FUSF surcharge.
