Electronic Filing of Proof of Claim Form

• Creditors are requested to file Proof of Claim forms for all chapters electronically. A login/password is not required.

• This contains a fillable B410 proof of claim form. Supplemental documentation to the claim may be attached. An attorney may file the proof of claim through the website, indicating, for whom the proof of claim is filed in the "filed by: field" (i.e. creditor or debtor) or may obtain a live ECF login and password.

• 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.

• Amended Claims - If the claim amends a claim previously filed in the case, check the box indicating that the claim amends a previously filed claim. Select the claim number being amended from the dropdown list of claim numbers.

• 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.

R. Bankr. P. 9037. This requirement applies to all documents, including attachments.
