ePOC Electronic Claims Filing Information
Filing a Proof of Claim Electronically
Creditors are requested to file Proof of Claim forms for all chapters electronically using the ePOC program. A login/password is not required.
The ePOC program contains a fillable B410 proof of claim form, and supplemental documentation to the claim may be attached in pdf format. Please do not attach a proof of claim form; one will be created by the program.
The address of the creditor is automatically added to the mailing matrix of the case when the proof of claim is filed to ensure 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 and select the claim number being amended from the dropdown list.
The name and complete address of the creditor, or other person authorized to file a proof of claim, must appear on the claim form. Filing a proof of claim electronically deems the claim signed by the creditor or authorized person.
IMPORTANT NOTICE OF REDACTION RESPONSIBILITY: All filers must redact: Social Security or taxpayer identification numbers; dates of birth; names of minor children; and financial account numbers, in compliance with Fed. R. Bankr. P. 9037. This requirement applies to all documents, including attachments.
- The ePOC claim filing program is for use by creditors only. Attorneys should log into the CM/ECF system to file proofs of claim.
