Meeting of Creditors Chapter 13

Rev. 1/15/2019


Miss. Bankr. L.R. 3015-1(d)



The Chapter 13 Trustee schedules the 341 Meeting of Creditors (the "Meeting") in the ECF system.   The trustee should schedule the Meeting after the debtor files his/her chapter 13 plan (the "Plan").  

Beginning December 1, 2017, the debtor's attorney or debtor must serve a copy of the Plan a Notice of Filing Chapter 13 Plan on the trustee, US Trustee, and all creditors.  See Notice of Filing Chapter 13 Plan.


Effective October 31, 2011, the BNC no longer mails a paper notice to the debtor's attorney.  Instead, the attorney receives an NEF with a  secured link to the pdf document that contains the debtor's full social security number.  The link provides a "one free look" to the unredacted Notice.  The attorney should save the unredacted 341 notice for future reference.



Cases Filed before December 1, 2017 (event sets proof of claim deadline 90 days from 341 meeting date)


Docket Event:


[Bankruptcy> Trustee/US Trustee> Meeting of Creditors Chapter 13 (Case filed BEFORE Dec 1 2017)]


Cases filed on and after December 1, 2017 (event sets proof of claim deadline 70 days from case file date)


Docket Event:


[Bankruptcy> Trustee/US Trustee> Meeting of Creditors Chapter 13]


Note:   When the case converts from another chapter to Chapter 13 the trustee must enter the date of the order of conversion.  The systems uses this date to calculate the proof of claim deadline (70 days from conversion).  See Fed. R. Bankr. P. 3002(c)


Docketing Process:

ECF user (trustee) enters:


  • 341 Meeting Date

  • 341 Meeting Time

  • 341 Meeting Location 

  • Last day to object to confirmation

  • Confirmation Hearing Date, Time, and Location (The Case Trustee contacts the Courtroom Deputy for the hearing information).


ECF system calculates:

  • Section 523 Objection deadline (60 days from the 341 meeting date)

  • Proof of Claims Deadline

    • 70 days from the case file date or the conversion date entered by the case trustee

  • Government Proof of Claim due date (180 days from case file date or *order for relief under chapter 13)


*Date order entered converting case to Chapter 13


As a general rule the government claim deadline is not changed unless the case converts to chapter 13 from another chapter.  The trustee should not change any deadline without contacting the case administrator verifying the deadline is incorrect and requires altering.
