What is a Proof of Claim in Bankruptcy?

A Proof of Claim in Bankruptcy is a document filed by a creditor to make sure they receive payment from the debtor's bankruptcy estate. It states that when a debtor files for bankruptcy, creditors must file this document in order to receive payment from the estate. The Proof of Claim must be filled out precisely and accurately, as it will be used to determine how much money each creditor will receive from the bankrupt estate.

The Proof of Claim includes information such as the amount owed, type of debt claim, details about any security interests held by the creditor and other pertinent information regarding the claim. This process allows creditors to have their claims recognized in the bankruptcy proceeding so that they can have some assurance that they will eventually receive funds from the bankrupt estate. The court uses these documents along with other evidence submitted during hearingsto determine which claims are valid and should be paid out first.
