Creditor Matrix

A creditor matrix is a listing of the name and address of each creditor in a bankruptcy case. It must be filed electronically pursuant to Indiana Southern Bankruptcy Court S.D.Ind. B-1007-1(b). A diskette or CD with the listings of creditors in a text file must be submitted for bankruptcy cases filed non-electronically (on paper). Electronic filers must upload the text file through the Creditor Maintenance menu option in ECF.

The creditor list must include all of the names and addresses listed on Schedules D, E, F, G and H. If any creditors listed are federal agencies, you must also include the U.S. Attorney – see Governmental Agencies section below.

Do not include the debtors, the case trustee, or the U.S. Trustee on the list.

NOTE: The attorney for the debtor(s) may be included on the list in a chapter 13 case ONLY to facilitate filing a claim. To eliminate duplicate noticing, the attorney’s name and address on the list must exactly match the attorney ECF user record.

  • Do not include account numbers.
  • Do not list duplicate creditors.
  • The names and addresses should be aligned to the left margin (align left)  in one single column.
  • There must be a blank line between each creditor record.
  • Each line may contain no more than 40 characters, including punctuation and spaces. Each record may be up to 6 lines – the creditor’s name must be on the first line and the City, State and Zip Code on the bottom line.
  • Do not include page numbers, headers, footers, debtor names, etc. on the creditor list - only the creditor information.
  • Format to use for each creditor name and address:

First Line: Creditor’s Name
Second Line: ‘Attention’ or address
Third Line: Address (if needed)
Bottom Line: City, State (2-letter abbreviation in CAPS) and Zip Code

Samples of correct format:

Governmental Agencies

If any federal agency other than the IRS is listed on the schedules (e.g., FHA, Dept. of Agriculture [USDA], HUD, etc.), add the U.S. Attorney to the list using the following address:

U.S. Attorney's Office

Indianapolis, IN 46204-3048

Pursuant to Fed.R.Bankr.P. 5003(e), federal and state governmental agencies may file statements with the Court designating their mailing addresses. These addresses are conclusively presumed to be the proper mailing addresses for the governmental agencies. The agencies listed have filed such statements with the Clerk’s Office for the Southern District of Indiana, and if any are listed on the schedules, they must be added to the creditor matrix list (one time only) using these designated addresses:
