National Creditor Registration Service

The National Creditor Registration Service (NCRS) is a free service provided by the U.S. Bankruptcy Courts to give creditors options to specify a preferred U.S. mail, e-mail address, or fax number to which bankruptcy notices should be sent. Caution – Creditors must provide the NCRS with all names and addresses used by them or this will not be successful.

Accessing Preferred Creditor Addresses Information

CAUTION – So long as the creditor has provided the National Creditor Registration Service (NCRS) with all of the names and addresses used by them and the debtor has provided the Court with the full name and address on their matrix, attorneys with access to ECF will be able to determine if a creditor has requested a Preferred Address. If both requirements are not met, the NCRS software will not be able to pull the preferred address.

Attorneys with CM/ECF access may obtain Preferred Address information by generating a Creditor Mailing Matrix from the Report menu on the CM/ECF Main Menu Bar.
