How do you describe someone who is actively going through Chapter 13?

I need to technically describe someone that has filed for Chapter 13 bankruptcy. The person's plan has been accepted, but the case has not been closed. How do I describe this?

Is it that the person is "currently in Chapter 13 bankruptcy"?
Or "currently going through Chapter 13 bankruptcy"?
Or "currently under Chapter 13 bankruptcy protection"?
Or something else?
This is for a public written communication (think blog post) where I'm describing this person. It is important to disclose that the person is under Chapter 13 plan. The person in question has inserted himself in the public sphere as a financial expert, so I'm not concerned about disclosing the Chapter 13 plan to the same public sphere.
I know there's a most efficient way to describe his bankruptcy, but I don't know what it is. More than anything, I want the description to be accurate. However, the description needs to be understood by the general public.
