In 2000, Student loans were not dischargeable in bankruptcy unless you filed an adversary case against them during your bankruptcy proceeding. Therefore, you will need to work out a repayment agreement with them if you did not, since they are normally non-dischargeable. I don't know why it took them this long to collect on the debt. Since you were making payments, that tolled any statute of limitations.
