Most chapter 13 payments are made through a payroll deduction at your place of employment. Your chapter 13 plan payment can also be made by electronic transfer from your bank account. Only in unusual circumstances will the Court allow plan payments to be made in any other manner. Should you make a plan payment personally, you should do so by money order or cashier’s check. Be sure to include your name, address and your chapter 13 case number on the front of your payment to ensure proper credit. Payment of your chapter 13 bankruptcy plan payment by personal check is discouraged by the bankruptcy trustees and cash payments cannot be accepted.
