Abuse in this case means the debtor is filing for bankruptcy but may have income (from an annuity or other forms of cash inflows) that could be used to pay off some or all of the debt, in which case a Chapter 7 would be dismissed and a Chapter 13 bankruptcy would be recommended (repayment plan), although the debtor would have to wait 180 days after the dismissal to submit a new petition.

However, by the time the debtor has filed for bankruptcy, their chances for obtaining new forms of credit are already jeopardized by a ruined credit score. Therefore, creditworthiness is usually overemphasized in the decision to file for bankruptcy.
