If its a permanent ban Paypal holds your funds for 180 days as that is the same timeframe that buyers have to open paypal disputes.
So if no disputes are opened against you in 180 days then you are allowed to withdraw the funds as long as you were over 18 then and the account is in your legal name. Sometimes Paypal request further documentation from you before you can withdraw those funds.
The name on the legal documents you send in has to prove the name on your paypal account is the same legal name.
If you didn't use your legal name then it won't prove anything will it.
Sadly the money and the funds belong to the person that owns the legal name on your paypal account and has the documents to prove it is correct or has been legally changed to that name ie if someone has married and got a new name.
