    Effective October 1, 2023, the US Trustee Program has established the Trustee Fee for cases administered by David Ruskin at 8.5%.  This amount can fluctuate during the course of a fiscal year as well as during the life of a Plan. We encourage the use of a rate of 10% when calculating cases to account for fluctuations in the fee during the life of the Plan.
