Thank you. But concerning this part of my question:
<<Can the state that is holding those funds transfer these to the creditor? What about student loan debt within that same state? In other words, since the Higher Education Debt Department and the Unclaimed Funds Office are closely tied, would they work in cooperation and take my brother's unclaimed funds, even though they are actually in the name of our deceased father?>>
Could the Unclaimed Funds Office arrange with the Higher Education Debt Office to BLOCK the release of the unclaimed funds to my brother?
