Electronic Proof of Claim Filing
The Electronic Proof of Claims (ePOC) is a program designed to streamline claims processing by allowing Creditors to file a claim, amend a claim, withdraw a claim, or supplement a claim via the internet without having to log into CM/ECF. The ePOC program will automatically prepare the official Bankruptcy Proof of Claim form (Form B10) based on the information entered into the program.
- Proof of Claim forms for all chapters may generally be filed electronically; however, ePOC is not available for cases that have been transferred between divisions.
- The name, complete address and telephone number of the creditor must appear on the claim form. If an attorney or a trustee is filing the claim on behalf of a creditor, the attorney or trustee should also enter his/her name, complete address and telephone number. The name and title, if any, of the person authorized to file the claim is required on the claim form.
Penalty for filing a fraudulent claim:
Fine of up to $500,000 or imprisonment for up to 5 years, or both. 11 U.S.C. §§ 152 and 3571.
