That other loan companies bought the student loans does not mean they are forgiven.  There is a specific process that must be followed to obtain forgiveness, and you will receive documentation showing that it has happened.  Several different companies had my loans which were in default because I can't work.  It took a Drs statement on a specific form and three years of verification of unemployment before the disability forgiveness came through.  Unless you have some sort of documented proof of forgiveness, you may still be contacted to make payments.  If the loans have been forgiven, they,like any other credit account, will show for 7 years, then fall off.
