PAYMENT ADVICES AND STATEMENT OF SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER
(a) Filing of payment advices and Statement of Social Security Number
Except where the court orders otherwise for good cause shown, debtors shall file payment advices as required by 11 U.S.C. § 521(a)(1)(B)(iv) with the court, and shall simultaneously serve a complete and unredacted copy thereof on the trustee appointed in that debtor’s case. The payment advices and Statement of Social Security Number filed with the court shall be maintained as sealed documents absent order of the court to the contrary for cause shown. The trustee and the United States Trustee shall be granted access to said documents without an order of the court.
(b) Statement that no payment advices available
Where debtors did not receive payment advices within the time period set forth in 11 U.S.C. § 521(a)(1)(B)(iv), they shall file a statement to that effect. The statement shall also provide the reason why no payment advices were received. Debtors shall simultaneously serve a complete and unredacted copy of that statement on the trustee appointed in that debtor’s case.

Advisory Committee Notes:
Payment advices are filed with the court pursuant to the Code but maintained as sealed documents, limiting parties’ access to this information. It is critical that the United States Trustee and trustees promptly receive this information from debtors in order to perform their jobs.
