    the problem is he's too scared to phone these people up.

    If he calls them and goes through the security questions, they will talk to you instead if he tells them that's what he wants. My housemate did this for me when I first started sorting out my debts and was totally frazzled and stressed by the info I was getting over the phone.

    I agree though - he does need to wake up and start doing things for himself, otherwise he'll never learn and will always need to rely on you, which in time you'll probably come to resent.

    Good luck! I hope between you, you can get things sorted. :)
