Employees of institutional creditors may obtain a limited-access account to file electronically on the Court's Electronic Case File (ECF) System. The limited-access account is intended for use by those who are not attorneys for filing specific claims-related filings. As the name of this account indicates, the account is limited in that the user has privileges to file selected documents only. A list of available docketing events can be found here.
A limited access account is not required if you are only interested in filing claims. Creditors seeking to file proof(s) of claim in a particular case should file electronic proofs of claim via the court’s website at: https://ecf.nysb.uscourts.gov/cgi-bin/autoFilingClaims.pl.
