The Northern District of Illinois will no longer mail Proof of Claim forms.

Effective Wednesday, September 21, 2011, the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Illinois, will no longer include a Proof of Claim form with 341 notices or Chapter 7 notices establishing a claims deadline. This is a cost-savings measure following a study that showed less than 5% of the Proof of Claims included with the Court's notices were returned. 

This makes sense to me.  I haven't used the mailed forms the past couple of times that I have filed claims.  As soon as I receive notice of a Chapter 13 filing, I usually print the form myself from the Northern Law Blog's forms archive and have it filed long before the official form arrives in the mail 7-10 days later.  

Visit the Forms Archive on the right for the latest version of the POC form.
