FTX Sets Vital Proof of Claims Deadline for September 29, 2023
FTX has issued a critical deadline for its users to file proof of claims. The deadline, known as the “Bar Date,” has been set for 4 PM Eastern Time (ET) on September 29, 2023. The announcement, made via the official FTX Twitter account, has sent ripples through the crypto community, urging users to take immediate action.
FTX users who have not yet initiated the claims process are strongly encouraged to do so by visiting the FTX Customer Claims Portal, accessible at https://claims.ftx.com. This portal is designed to facilitate the filing of proof of claims, a crucial step for those who may have been affected by recent events or changes within the platform.
The deadline to file a proof of claim is 09/29/2023 4PM ET (“Bar Date”). Please begin the claims process through the FTX Customer Claims Portal (https://t.co/DkYi2hDLbI) if you have not done so already.

One noteworthy aspect of FTX’s announcement is that users are advised to begin the Know Your Customer (KYC) process as part of the claims submission process. While KYC verification is not mandatory to submit a claim by the Bar Date, it is strongly recommended. This approach allows users to kickstart their claims process promptly, with KYC verification continuing beyond the Bar Date.
The Know Your Customer process is a standard industry practice that helps exchanges and financial institutions verify the identity of their users. It is designed to enhance security, prevent fraud, and ensure compliance with legal and regulatory requirements. By starting this process now, FTX users can expedite their claims and potentially reduce the processing time after the Bar Date.
The setting of a Bar Date is a common practice in legal and financial contexts, often used in bankruptcy cases and similar situations. It serves as a firm deadline by which all claims must be submitted. FTX’s decision to establish a Bar Date underscores the exchange’s commitment to transparency and the efficient resolution of claims.
FTX users should be aware that missing the Bar Date could have implications for their ability to recover assets or participate in any potential settlements or distributions resulting from ongoing developments. Therefore, it is of utmost importance for affected users to take prompt action and initiate the claims process before the September 29, 2023, deadline.
