A: Creditors have to file a proof of claim (POC) if they want to get paid in the Ch. 13. There is a time limit for them to do that. If the time limit has passed they will not receive anything. If not they may still file a POC.

Really doesn't matter to you since the debt will be discharged when the Ch. 13 is completed.
