Employees of institutional creditors may obtain a limited-access account to file electronically proofs of claim 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.
Limited-Access Account: Limited-access is not available for one-time filers such as a creditor seeking to file their own proof of claim in a particular case; instead, it is intended for those who regularly file with the Court. Those filing a single proof of claim may file conventionally (that is, by mail, courier or hand delivery to the court or, where a claims agent has been retained in a case, to the claims agent).
PACER: Those seeking to obtain a limited-access account must establish an account with PACER. You may register for a PACER account either online at http://www.pacer.gov or by calling (800) 676-6856.
