Any News about The money? How long must i wait for IT?

Their website states that they drop student loans after a 25 year period. I have been paying on my student loan for 25 years now. It has always be in income-based repayment. They are telling me that it hasn't been. I have gotten complete payment histories from the previous company and with the company with whom it is with now and the state that it has.

First of all I’m disabled and will never work again thanks to my now Ex. So my loans are not 18,000 and I will never be able to repay that. It’s suppose to be 12,000 because the credit company doesn’t listen when I tell them to cut me off due to being disabled. No they keep adding charges. I’m not paying near that much. It’s totally wrong.
