Dispute it or leave it?

Let's say someone has 3 accounts that range from 11 to 15 years in age. The age of the accounts are helping the scores. One account has been sold by the AC. The other 2 were charged off. Should these accounts be disputed or left alone?
 
Last activity on these accounts was less than 7 years ago.
 
 
What to do......what to do????

I put all my bills in a hat each month and keep drawing names and paying bills until there's no money left. If you don't stop harassing me, your name won't go in the hat!

I would take not having a CO on my report way before considering the age benefits.

How long do disputes take to go through the system. And how would I know?
