T is 65 years old, he cannot read or write and two years ago had part of his foot amputated due to diabetes. While he was in the hospital, and in the months after, he wasn’t able to work and got into debt. He is now just about managing to live on his benefits but doesn’t have any spare income to clear his debts. His aim is to get debt free so that he can enjoy his retirement. £90 for a Debt Relief Order would mean that the worry of debt would go away and he can concentrate on his health.
