NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN THAT INFORMATION RELATING TO YOUR CHAPTER 13 BANKRUPTCY CASE WILL BE MADE AVAILABLE ON THE INTERNET TO YOUR CREDITORS AND OTHER PARTIES IN INTEREST. YOUR CASE INFORMATION IS NOT AVAILABLE TO THE GENERAL PUBLIC.
Pursuant to 11 U.S.C. 1302(b)(1) and 704(7) your Chapter 13 Trustee has a duty, unless otherwise ordered by the bankruptcy court, to furnish information concerning the administration of your bankruptcy case as requested by creditors and parties in interest.
In furtherance of this duty, the Chapter 13 Trustee will make the following information available to parties in interest who request such information, which may include the following:
- Your name, address, bankruptcy case number, state and district in which your case is pending and the Trustee assigned to your case. Your social security number will not be visibly displayed. Creditors will be able to search for your bankruptcy case using your social security number. Your employer's name will not be displayed.
- Information regarding claims filed in your bankruptcy case, including the identity of the claimant, the type of claim (i.e., priority taxes, secured, unsecured, etc.), and the amount of the claim.
- A history of all payments, including the date and amount of each payment you make to your Chapter 13 Trustee and a history of all disbursements, including the date of the disbursement and the payee.
Your case information will not be displayed to nor will it be viewed by the general public. Case information is limited to creditors and parties in interest. All creditors accessing your case data are tracked and recorded for security purposes.
Your case information will be displayed on two separate websites. The first is www.13network.com. Most creditors and probably your attorney may access your case information from this website. This requires a specific login and password provided by the Trustee's office. Creditors and attorneys cannot access information on Chapter 13 cases unless they are scheduled as a party in the case or have filed an appearance in the case. This means they cannot access case information in other cases where they are not scheduled as a creditor.
You may ask, "How can I look at my case information via the Internet?" Chapter 13 Trustees do not provide debtors with a special login and password. As a result, a second website was created at www.13Datacenter.com. The NDC website was developed for national creditors that hold a substantial number of claims in thousands of Chapter 13 cases and to give you free access to your case information. If you want to access your case information go to www.13Datacenter.com, select the proper case trustee, enter your case number (for example, if the case number is 04-12345, simply type in that case number), and answer a few questions. If you answer the questions correctly, access will be granted to your case information.
If you find any of your data to be inaccurate, you should contact your Trustee in writing and provide the following information: 1) your name 2) your case number 3) your current telephone number and address 4) the date you accessed the data 5) a description of the inaccurate information. Please allow eight (8) business days for payments mailed to the NBC Bank in Memphis to be displayed on the website. The Trustee's office will provide a written response to you within thirty (30) days of receipt of your letter.
