What is a Limited Filer Participant?
Attorneys and creditor representatives may request filing access as a creditor through PACER. Creditor filing accounts are restricted to filing of: Creditor Request for Notices and/or Notices of Appearance, Reaffirmation Agreements, and some Claim related filings. Proofs of Claim, Amended Proofs of Claim, Withdrawals of Claims, and Claim Supplements must be filed using the ePOC.

I am a creditor in a Chapter 11 case and the Plan of Reorganization has been approved. Can the Clerk's Office explain to me why I have not yet received any payments and when will payments commence?
All questions regarding payments under a confirmed plan should be directed to the attorney for the Debtor-in-Possession or trustee if one has been appointed.
I have received a notice and summary of the Trustee's Final Report and Account in a Chapter 7 case. How long will it be before I receive payment on my claim?
Once the Notice and Summary of the Trustee's Final Report and Account has been sent to all creditors, it takes approximately 6 to 8 weeks before the money is distributed to creditors. If an objection is filed to the Final Report and Account, a hearing may be scheduled. Should this occur, the monies in a case cannot be distributed until the matter has been resolved.
I am a creditor in a case that has converted to another chapter. Is it necessary for me to file another Proof of Claim?
No. Once you have filed a Proof of Claim with the court, it is recorded on a claims register and is considered part of the case regardless of conversion to another chapter.
How do I file a claim?
• You can file a claim electronically using ePOC (Electronic Proof of Claim Program). No login is required. Additional information about ePOC may be found at www.ilcb.uscourts.gov/electronic-proof-claim-epoc-program.
