ePOC (Electronic Proof of Claim)

A Proof of Claim may be filed over the internet without the need for a CM/ECF login and password. The creditor is prompted to provide the required information and then, once the claim is submitted, an Official B-410 form is automatically populated, filed and a Notice of Electronic Filing (NEF) is sent to the debtor's attorney, trustee, and U.S. Trustee. The claim is automatically added to the Claims Register and the creditor is allowed a "free look" and download of the completed B-410 Proof of Claim form. The Proof of Claim may be subsequently amended or withdrawn using the same procedure.

To file a proof of claim:

To amend or withdraw a proof of claim:

Frequently Asked Questions – Electronic Proof of Claims

2. When will the claim appear on the claims register?
The claim will immediately appear on the claims register upon submitting the proof of claim.

3. Can I get a stamp filed acknowledgment of the Proof of Claim?
Yes, the Court's claim number will display with a link to the electronically filestamped proof of claim upon submitting the proof of claim. The claim will be file stamped as of the entry date. It is recommended that the claim is printed or saved at this time.

4. Will the Trustee and the Attorney for the Debtor be served with the Proof of
Claim?

Yes, they will receive electronic notification of the claim filed. You do not need to file a separate paper claim with the Trustee's office.

I attach those PDF images of supporting documentation?

8. Can I include a separate address that payments should be mailed to?
Yes, check the box indicating that the Payment Address differs from Notice Address. An additional address field will appear for this alternative address.

9. I am filing the Proof of Claim as an agent for a Company, do I need to fill out
the section for Authorized Agent of Creditor?

Yes, provide your name, title, address (even if it is the same as the creditor) and a telephone number where you can be reached if necessary.
