New Way to Pay Your Topeka Chapter 13 Bankruptcy Payments



There is a new way to pay your bankruptcy payment to the Topeka chapter 13 trustee. Jan Hamilton Trustee has contracted with TFS Bill Pay so you may send money to the trustee electronically.

This is a service through a third party. It involves a fee for handling the money and there is a short delay for payments to transfer from your account to TFS Bill Pay and on to the trustee.

TFS Bill Pay costs 99 cents for a payment up to $100, which is cheaper than a 59 cent money order at the local grocery store plus a 46 cent stamps, not counting your time or gas money. The cost for a payment $101 to $250 is $1.99.

This service is voluntary. You may still pay by wage order, which is the preferred method, or by check mailed to Jan Hamilton Trustee, PO Box 2159, Topeka, KS 66601, or placed in the drop box at 507 SW Jackson, Topeka, KS. No cash is accepted.

TFS Bill Pay may only be used to pay Jan Hamilton and trustees in other states who have contacted with the service. The other chapter 13 trustees in Kansas City, KS, and Wichita do not use this service.
