If you are having to wait 180 days to withdraw any funds then it sounds as if you have a permanent ban.
If you have a permanent ban then you are not allowed to close it, paypal limit it to stop you doing so. That way you can't use any of the linked information to try and open another paypal account against their rules.
The only reason i suspected that is because you mentioned 180 days?
Only any email permanently banning you normally says they will release any funds after 180 days but only you know the info you have got, I'm guessing to be honest based on what you said and the fact you can't close your account.
