Why Is the Trustee Asking Creditors To File a Proof of Claim?
The bankruptcy process is complex, and one of the most important steps is filing a proof of claim. A creditor’s proof of claim is a statement that outlines how much debt they are owed by the debtor. When a debtor files for bankruptcy, it's the trustee's job to make sure all creditors are identified and receive their due payments in full. That’s why they may ask creditors to file a proof of claim - so they can determine how much money should go toward repaying debts.
A proof of claim will help the trustee figure out which creditors need to be paid, when payment needs to be made, and at what rate interest should apply. It also helps them decide who gets paid first if there isn't enough money available for everyone.
