Bankruptcy Administration Improvement Act (BAIA) and Chapter 7 Trustee Payments

Friday, June 17, 2022

The Bankruptcy Administration Improvement Act (BAIA) establishes an additional payment for eligible Chapter 7 bankruptcy trustees.

Bankruptcy courts will begin processing an additional $60 per case payment to eligible Chapter 7 bankruptcy trustees for applicable cases filed or converted in fiscal year 2021. Applicable cases are Chapter 7 cases filed on or after January 12, 2021, through September 30, 2021, or Chapter 11, 12, or 13 cases filed on or after January 12, 2021, that are subsequently converted to Chapter 7, on or before September 30, 2021.

To assist with implementation, the Administrative Office of the United States Courts created a dedicated public webpage on announcing that BAIA trustee payments will soon begin, and asking trustees to allow time for clerks' offices to process payments before requesting information or updates.
