Electronic Filing of Proof of Claim (effective November 1, 2016)

Wednesday, October 26, 2016

Effective Tuesday, November 1, 2016, proofs of claim may be created and electronically filed
through the Court’s website, except in cases where there is a Claims and Noticing Agent
assigned. The electronic filing of proofs of claim and amended proofs of claim is strongly
encouraged.

This service is now provided as an alternative filing option for those parties not eligible to
register for CM/ECF who had to previously file their proofs of claim conventionally (in paper)
with the court.

A Proof of Claim may be filed electronically for all chapters, except cases with a claims and
noticing agent. A login and password is not required.

The name and complete address of the creditor must appear on the proof of claim form. If an
attorney is filing the claim on behalf of a creditor, the attorney should also enter his/her name
and address. The name and title, if any, of the person authorized to file the claim is required on
the claim form.

Please do not upload a completed Proof of Claim as an attachment to the electronically filed
claim. If filing an Amended Proof of Claim, the attachment of the previously filed claim is
allowed.

The filing of a proof of claim electronically on this court’s website shall constitute the filer’s
approved signature and have the same force and effect as if the individual signed a paper copy of
the document and the provisions of 18 U.S.C. § 152 shall apply to such filing.

You must remove certain personal information from all documents before electronically
submitting the proof of 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.
