New Form and CM/ECF Event for Supplemental Proof of Claim for CARES Forbearance Claim

Monday, March 8, 2021

 

The Advisory Committee on Bankruptcy Rules has approved a new Director’s Form 4100S (Supplemental Proof of Claim for CARES Forbearance Claim). This new form is effective as of February 5, 2021, and will sunset on December 27, 2021. A copy of the form can be found at: https://www.uscourts.gov/forms/bankruptcy-forms/supplemental-proof-claim-cares-forbearance-claim

 

Director’s Form 4100S addresses Section 1001(d) of Title X of the Consolidated Appropriations Act (CAA) (Pub. L. 116-260) which creates a new section 501(f) of the Bankruptcy Code. This new section permits an “eligible creditor” to file a supplemental proof of claim for a CARES Act forbearance in a Chapter 13 case.

 

To assist with implementing this new Director’s form, a new CM/ECF event has been created. The event “Supplemental Proof of Claim for CARES Forbearance Claim” will be available in the Claim Objection/Actions category.

 

Electronic Proof of Claim (ePOc) has also been updated to allow the filing of this form.
