Trustee

The court appointed private individual who manages the property of the debtor for the principal benefit of the unsecured creditors.  The trustee is under the general supervision of the court and the direct supervision of the U.S. trustee.  The trustee's responsibilities include review of the debtor's petition and schedules, conducting the 341 Meeting of Creditors, and bringing actions against creditors or the debtor to recover property of the bankruptcy estate. A Chapter 7 trustee liquidates property of the estate and makes distributions to creditors.  A Chapter 13 trustee has the additional responsibilities of overseeing the debtor's plan, receiving payments from debtors, and disbursing plan payments to creditors.
