The role of the Chapter 13 trustee is to receive the monthly payments that you have proposed to make in your Chapter 13 plan and distribute those funds accordingly. For example, the trustee will receive a lump sum payment from you, and according to the dictates of your plan, will send some money to your mortgage lender, some to your vehicle lender and if you're required to pay anything back to your unsecured creditors, some of that money will go to your unsecured creditors. So the trustee really just takes your payment and distributes it according to the plan that you file at the beginning of your case.
