Electronic Claims Filing

The bankruptcy court now accepts claims filed electronically.  Please note that electronic claims cannot be filed in cases with an assigned claims agent.  In addition, the electronic claims system does not require a username and password and is not accessed through CM/ECF.  The Court's electronic claim filing system is accessible through the "Filing a Claim" link on the Court's website.  That link is located on the front page of our website and is also found under the "Programs & Services" tab at the top of that page.  Claims filed electronically appear on the claims register for the case number entered.   For more information on how to file an electronic claim, please review the electronic learning module on "How to File an Electronic Claim," located on the "Filing a Claim" page.
