If information in a proof of claim or its supporting information is incorrect or incomplete, a creditor must file an amended proof of claim. The creditor may do so in one of two ways.
- Submit an electronic amended proof of claim using the Court's ePOC program. No registration or password is needed to use ePOC. The ePOC system will automatically create an amended electronic proof of claim based on the information you enter into the program. Check "yes" when asked if you are amending a claim and have handy the number of your earlier proof of claim. If you don't know the number of your original proof of claim, call the Bankruptcy Clerk at (605) 357-2400 or (605) 945-4460. You may upload any supporting information once you complete the electronic amended proof of claim. Click here to use ePOC. Please note, if an amended proof of claim is needed because the name or the address of the creditor is incorrect, you cannot use ePOC to file the amended proof of claim. Instead, you will need to file an amended proof of claim using Official Form 410, as provided below.
- Complete, date, and sign an Official Form 410, indicating in Part 1, question 4 that it is an amended proof of claim, and file it with the Bankruptcy Clerk. Click here to print a blank official form or to complete the official form on-line and then print and sign it. File the completed, dated, and signed amended proof of claim and any supporting information as follows:
(1) An attorney for a creditor or a limited use filer may electronically file a PDF of the completed, dated, and signed amended proof of claim and any supporting information using the Court's NextGen CM/ECF system. An attorney must use either ePOC (see above) or NextGen CM/ECF to electronically file an amended proof of claim. Click here to learn more about NextGen CM/ECF and how to register to use it.
(2) A creditor, but not an attorney for a creditor, may mail the completed, dated, and signed amended proof of claim and any supporting information to the Bankruptcy Clerk (either office):
400 South Phillips Avenue, Room 104
Sioux Falls, South Dakota 57104-6851
U.S. Post Office & Federal Building
225 South Pierre Street, Room 203
Pierre, South Dakota 57501-2463
(3) A creditor, but not an attorney for a creditor, may deliver the completed, dated, and signed amended proof of claim and any supporting information to the Bankruptcy Clerk at one of the addresses above. Each office is open from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. (Central), excluding weekends and federal holidays.
