Information from the U.S. Trustee for Participating in Telephonic Section 341 Meetings

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the U.S. Trustee has determined that all Section 341 Meetings of Creditors (“Meetings”) will be conducted remotely. The instructions and information to participate in the remote Meetings can be found here. The U.S. Trustee encourages all parties to contact the case trustee or check the docket for up-to-date information. Any questions regarding Section 341 Meetings should be directed to the appropriate U.S. Trustee’s Office (Baltimore (410) 962-4300; Greenbelt (301) 344-6216).


The U.S. Trustee Program has extended the requirement that section 341 meetings be conducted by telephone or video appearance to all cases filed during the period of the President’s “Proclamation on Declaring a National Emergency Concerning the Novel Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) Outbreak” issued March 13, 2020, and ending on the date that is 60 days after such declaration terminates. However, the U.S. Trustee may approve a request by a trustee in a particular case to continue the section 341 meeting to an in-person meeting in a manner that complies with local public health guidance, if the U.S. Trustee determines that an in-person examination of the debtor is required to ensure the completeness of the meeting or the protection of estate property. This policy may be revised at the discretion of the Director of the United States Trustee Program.

Please visit the USTP regional and district office Web pages where your case is filed for any additional information on section 341 meetings that may apply within your jurisdiction.
