Claims Filing
[last updated: 10/24/2013]

Claims Filing

Creditors may file Proof of Claim forms for all chapters electronically. A login/password is not required.

The claims electronic filing program contains a fillable Proof of Claim form (Form B10) along with supplemental forms and the ability to amend or withdraw a claim. Supplemental documentation to the claim may be attached. The address of the creditor is automatically added to the mailing matrix of a case when a proof of claim is filed to insure service of case-wide documents.

The following are direct links which enable creditors to file these documents with the Court.

Amended Claims - Check the box indicating that the claim amends a previously filed claim. Select the court claim number and enter the pertinent information on the claim form.

The full name and title of a creditor or other person authorized to file a proof of claim must appear on the form. If a party other than the creditor is filing the proof of claim, the address of that party must be included. Filing a proof of claim electronically deems the claim signed by the creditor or authorized person.

Penalty for filing fraudulent claim: Fine of up to $500,000 imprisonment for up to 5 years, or both. 18 U.S.C. 152 and 3571.
