Proof of Claim

There are two ways to file a Proof of Claim with the court: (1) mail or deliver your claim to the Clerk's Office in Denver or (2) use the Electronic Proof of Claim (ePOC) application. The instructions below provide guidance for online filing.


Instructions for Filing an Electronic Proof of Claim

A proof of claim may be filed online using the electronic proof of claim (ePOC) application. This service is provided as an alternative filing option for those parties not required to register for CM/ECF. Please read all information provided below BEFORE attempting to file your proof of claim. 

While completing the Proof of Claim form, you will be asked if you wish to attach supporting documentation.  Multiple attachments are permitted and should show that the debt exists, a lien secures the debt, or both. Attachments MUST be in PDF format, MUST be smaller than 10mb in size and MUST NOT contain document security. Attachments not meeting these criteria will be rejected by the application.

Certain personal information must be removed from all documents before electronically submitting the proof of claim form. All filers must redact: Social Security or taxpayer-identification numbers; dates of birth; names of minor children; and financial account numbers. This requirement applies to all documents, including attachments.

When you have completed and submitted this form, a verification message will indicate that you have successfully filed a claim.

NOTE: The filing of a Proof of Claim does not constitute an entry of appearance. You will not receive electronic notification of case filings.

NOTE: Notices pursuant to FRBP 3002.1 cannot be filed using the ePOC application.
