CBS: Mom Required to Pay Back Student Loan, More than a Year After He Was Murdered

The Higher Education Student Assistance Authority, also known as HESAA, is being accused of driving families into financial ruin when borrowers become sick, lose their jobs, or even die

O'DONNELL: "This month investigation by 'The New York Times' and ProPublica looked at the higher education student assistance authority. They quoted a lawyer who likened it to, quote, 'state-sanctioned loan-sharking. Michelle Miller spoke with one mother who was required to pay back her son's student loans more than a year after he was murdered. Michelle, good morning."
MILLER: "Good morning. Well the authority also known by its initials HESAA is the largest state-run student loan program in the country with a $1.9 billion portfolio. It's now being accused of driving families into financial ruin when borrowers become sick, lose their jobs or even die."
