USAC shared news during the National Verifier Update Webinar on July 26, 2017, including how service providers will interact with the National Verifier.
Users can access the National Verifier three ways:
- NV online Consumer Portal, where consumers can verify their Lifeline eligibility independently.
- Mailed paper form, which consumers can complete independently or with the support of a service provider.
- NV Service Provider Portal, which service providers can use to assist consumers with eligibility checking and receive a “yes/no” eligibility determination in near real-time.
