Questions about ePay:


THE CHAPTER 13 TRUSTEE'S OFFICE WILL NEVER CONTACT YOU BY TEXT, TELEPHONE OR EMAIL REGARDING PAYMENTS. The only ways to make payments to the Trustee are through the TFS or e-Pay websites or by sending a paper instrument to the Trustee's Memphis post office box. The Trustee does NOT maintain her own payment website. If you have a payment account with TFS and elect to receive text reminders, TFS may send messages reminding you that a payment is due or advising you that a payment was returned for insufficient funds, but any link in such a message would take you to the TFS login page.

If you receive a suspicious text, email or telephone call regarding your Chapter 13 case, please contact the Chapter 13 Trustee's office or your attorney.

Regarding Requests for Plan Balance Amounts...

The trustee will provide a figure to pay the balance of a case as required by law only on request of debtor's counsel and only to the person as requested by debtor's counsel. However, with the proper authorization to a lending institution, the figure to pay the balance of a case as required by law will be provided to the designated institution if debtor's counsel has a motion to refinance or incur debt pending.

Delinquency Information on the Trustee's web site.

The Trustee's office offers delinquency information on active cases through this web site. Users should be aware that this information is offered for your convenience, but the Trustee offers no guarantee of currency or accuracy. Generally, information on active cases should be accurate within two days of receipts and payment due dates. Nevertheless, in order to obtain the most current and accurate delinquent amount, users should calculate the debtor's delinquency themselves using the plan terms and the Trustee's record of receipts. Please note that delinquency information on dismissed or converted cases is NOT offered. Users seeking delinquency information for dismissed cases must calculate the delinquent amount manually, or call the Trustee's office for assistance.

Access to Chapter 13 case information is available online to parties in interest who have read and completed the access agreement available on this page. Interested parties should download and complete the access agreement. Please contact the office for more information.
