How do I make Chapter 13 Plan payments directly to the Trustee?

 

Payments must be made by cashier’s check or money order. Always put your case number on the check or money order, and print your name on the front of it.

The Trustee does not accept cash. He will take your personal check, and he will cash it right away, but he will wait 30 days before crediting the payment to your account, because he has had so much trouble with bad checks in the past. That delay can sometimes cause trouble in your Chapter 13 case, especially during the first few months after it is filed.

Most people choose to but the payment in the drop box next to the elevators on the first floor of the Bankruptcy Building at 200 Jefferson Ave. You can also mail the payment to:

Chapter 13 Trustees; 200 Jefferson Ave.; Suite 1113; Memphis, TN 38103. Do not attempt to take the payment to the Trustee’s office on the 11th floor.
