Description

New Jersey's student loan agency, the Higher Education Student Assistance Authority, has some of the most aggressive collection tactics in the industry with few reprieves, even for borrowers who've died. ProPublica's series lays out how HESAA's loans have unraveled lives - sending many families into financial ruin - to the point they've been described as “state-sanctioned loan-sharking.”
