Own Your Future Now
Mission Life International has set out to change the world by bringing chiropractic to the undeserved and to those who are very poor. The dream is twofold: first, to bring health and well-being to the world by changing the way people view and manage their lives, and second, create a sustainable operations model that allows highly trained doctors of chiropractic to live out their purpose and passion.
Chiropractic: An Industry in Transition
The number of chiropractic doctors that leave the profession simply because they cannot afford to remain in it is, frankly, frightening. Comparing the investment of education alone that chiropractors have to make to the average chiropractic salaries paints a fairly depressing picture. The student loans are astronomical. Mission Life International has vowed to do something on a global scale to support and grow chiropractic. Did you know that if you are employed by a chapter of Mission Life International you will be able to receive loan forgiveness under the Public Service Loan Forgiveness Program?

Mission Life International: Our purpose is to help the poor especially in those countries where resources are so terribly limited.
Mission Life International is a 501(C)(3) registered charitable organization in the USA. We are also a registered Nonprofit in the Dominican Republic and in Haiti. We began our missions in 2002 in the Dominican Republic, Haiti, Trinidad, Tobago, Venezuela, Cuba and Tibet China. During Jan 2010, we were in Port Au Prince, Haiti on a mission trip. We returned to NY January 11, 2010. The very next day on January 12, 2010 Haiti was struck with the worst Earthquake in the last 200 years. Our team of 20 returned to Port Au Prince and started feeding and adjusting thousands. The International Lions club donated to us many tents and we took in hundreds of children. Mission Life International is born.
Mission Life International, has a purpose to promote chiropractic and adjust all those who are subluxated throughout the world, especially in third world countries where resources are so terribly limited. Mission Life International works to raise funds for charitable organizations especially in third world countries. Our goals are to provide food, clothing and shelter to those in need! Mission Life International recognizes the enormous advancement of the Chiropractor's role in the Wellness Revolution and we feel that millions of human beings do not have the luxury to experience the power of a chiropractic adjustment. Therefore, Mission Life International was formed to serve the world and help all chiropractors to expand their hearts and minds.
Mission Life International clothes, feeds and houses 29 children in Ouanaminthe, Haiti. Our education arm educates our 29 children at our Mission Life Orphanage and 39 children at Pastor Prospers school. We have purchased the land for Pastor Prosper who was about to lose his church and school. Mission Life International has brought computers, toiletries, school supplies, books and many other commodities on one of our 76 mission trips. We have built wells, installed water filtration systems and built desks and blackboards since the devastating earthquake of 2010. In January 2013, we moved our children into better housing with a security guard and employed a nun to help provide structure in their daily routine and assist in their daily activities. We have brought approximately 2500 Doctors to Haiti since 2002. Presently when we travel to Haiti our missionaries are housed in the United Nations Military base. The United Nations will be leaving Haiti in April 2017 and we will have no place to house our missionaries.
Our Primary Focus:
Building new dormitories for our orphans our future orphans and our missionaries. Presently we rent several houses. We have started the construction for dormitories for our children and our missionaries and for our schools. We are approximately $35,000 away from completion. We have started construction for a huge kitchen. The kitchen is already complete; however, we need $15,000 to complete two apartments above the kitchen. The kitchen will serve our American restaurant that we plan on opening in April 2017. This will provide jobs for our children, our 20 translators that we employ and for our security team. Our translators are presently working with UN officials to help rescue people from the latest storm; Hurricane Matthew. If you are passionate about making changes to our worlds health crisis, and you know by your actions that you can make a difference, why please donate to Mission Life International.

What is qualifying employment?
Qualifying employment for the PSLF Program is not about the specific job that you do for your employer. Rather, it is about who your employer is. Employment with the following types of organizations qualifies for PSLF:
Government organizations at any level (federal, state, local, or tribal)
Not-for-profit organizations that are tax-exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code
Other types of not-for-profit organizations that provide certain types of qualifying public services
Serving in a full-time AmeriCorps or Peace Corps position also counts as qualifying employment for the PSLF Program.
The following types of employers do not qualify for PSLF:
Partisan political organizations
Non-profit organizations that are not tax-exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code and that do not provide a qualifying service
What is considered full-time employment?
For PSLF, you are generally considered to work full-time if you meet your employer’s definition of full-time or work at least 30 hours per week, whichever is greater. You can work in your own chiropractic office and at the same time work 30 hours a week for Mission Life International. We teach you how.
If you are employed in more than one qualifying part-time job at the same time, you may meet the full-time employment requirement if you work a combined average of at least 30 hours per week with your employers.
For borrowers who are employed by not-for-profit organizations, time spent on religious instruction, worship services, or any form of proselytizing may not be counted toward meeting the full-time employment requirement.
Which types of federal student loans qualify for PSLF?
A qualifying loan for PSLF is any loan you received under the William D. Ford Federal Direct Loan (Direct Loan) Program.
You may have received loans under other federal student loan programs, such as the Federal Family Education Loan (FFEL) Program or the Federal Perkins Loan (Perkins Loan) Program. Loans from these programs do not qualify for PSLF, but they may become eligible if you consolidate them into a Direct Consolidation Loan. However, only qualifying payments that you make on the new Direct Consolidation Loan can be counted toward the 120 payments required for PSLF. Any payments you made on the FFEL Program loans or Perkins Loans before you consolidated them don’t count.
If you have both Direct Loans and other types of federal student loans that you want to consolidate to take advantage of PSLF, it’s important to understand that if you consolidate your existing Direct Loans with the other loans, you will lose credit for any qualifying PSLF payments you made on your Direct Loans before they were consolidated. In this situation, you may want to leave your existing Direct Loans out of the consolidation and consolidate only your other federal student loans.
If you don’t know which types of federal student loans you have, log in to My Federal Student Aid to get that information. Generally, if you see a loan type with “Direct” in the name on My Federal Student Aid, then it is a Direct Loan; otherwise, it is a loan made under another federal student loan program.
What is a qualifying monthly payment?
A qualifying monthly payment is a payment that you make
after October 1, 2007;
under a qualifying repayment plan;
for the full amount due as shown on your bill;
no later than 15 days after your due date; and
while you are employed full-time by a qualifying employer.
You can make qualifying monthly payments only during periods when you are required to make a payment. Therefore, you cannot make a qualifying monthly payment while your loans are in
an in-school status,
the grace period,
a forbearance, or
Your 120 qualifying monthly payments do not need to be consecutive.
If you make a monthly payment for more than the amount you are required to pay, you should keep in mind that you can receive credit for only one payment per month, no matter how much you pay. You can’t qualify for PSLF faster by making larger payments. However, if you do want to pay more than your required monthly payment amount, you should contact your servicer and ask that the extra amount not be applied to cover future payments. Otherwise, you may end up being paid ahead, and you can’t receive credit for a qualifying PSLF payment during a month when no payment is due.
There are special rules that allow borrowers who are AmeriCorps or Peace Corps volunteers to use their Segal Education Award or Peace Corps transition payment to make a single “lump sum” payment that may count for up to 12 qualifying PSLF payments.
The best way to ensure that you are making qualifying payments is to sign up for automatic debit with your loan servicer.
What is a qualifying repayment plan?
Qualifying repayment plans include all of the income-driven repayment plans (plans that base your monthly payment on your income) and the 10-year Standard Repayment Plan.
Even though the 10-year Standard Repayment Plan is a qualifying repayment plan for PSLF, you will not receive PSLF unless you make the majority of your 120 qualifying monthly payments under an income-driven repayment plan. If you are in repayment on the 10-year Standard Repayment Plan during the entire time you are working toward PSLF, you will have no remaining balance left to forgive after you have made 120 qualifying PSLF payments. Therefore, if you are seeking PSLF and are not already repaying under an income-driven repayment plan, you should change to an income-driven repayment plan as soon as possible.
Be sure to read about the pros and cons of income-driven repayment plans before deciding to repay your federal student loans using those plans.
How do I know I’m on the right track to receive PSLF?
Because you have to make 120 qualifying monthly payments, it will take at least 10 years for you to become eligible for PSLF. To help you determine if you are on the right track as early as possible, we have created an Employment Certification for Public Service Loan Forgiveness form (Employment Certification form) that you can submit periodically while you are working toward meeting the PSLF eligibility requirements. We will use the information you provide on the form to let you know if you are making qualifying PSLF payments.
Although you are not required to do so, we encourage you to submit the Employment Certification form annually or whenever you change jobs, so that we can help you track your progress toward meeting the PSLF eligibility requirements. If you do not periodically submit the form, then at the time you apply for forgiveness you will be required to submit an Employment Certification form for each employer where you worked while making the required 120 qualifying monthly payments.
If you would like us to track your progress as you work toward making the 120 qualifying monthly payments for PSLF, send the completed form, with your employer’s certification, to FedLoan Servicing (PHEAA), the U.S. Department of Education’s federal loan servicer for the PSLF Program.
We will take the following actions after we receive your Employment Certification form:
We will review your Employment Certification form to ensure that it is complete, and to determine whether your employment is qualifying employment for the PSLF Program.
We will notify you if the form you submitted is incomplete or if we cannot determine, based on the information provided on the form, whether your employment qualifies. We may ask you to provide additional information or documentation to help us determine whether you were employed by a qualifying public service organization.
If we determine that your employer is not an eligible public service organization, we will notify you that your employment does not qualify. If you believe there is additional information that would establish the eligibility of your employer, you will have the opportunity to provide that information.
If we determine that your employment qualifies, and if some or all of your federal student loans that are owned by the U.S. Department of Education are not already serviced by FedLoan Servicing (PHEAA), those loans will be transferred to FedLoan Servicing (PHEAA). You will then have a single federal loan servicer for all of your federally held loans. You will receive a notice if your loans are transferred.
If we determine that your employment qualifies, we will then review your payment history (including any payments you made to another federal loan servicer before your loans were transferred) to determine how many payments made during the period of employment certified on the Employment Certification form are qualifying monthly payments for PSLF. We will then inform you that your employment qualifies and notify you of the total number of qualifying payments you have made, and how many payments you must still make before you can qualify for PSLF.
Note that loan amounts forgiven under the PSLF Program are not considered income by the Internal Revenue Service. Therefore, you will not have to pay federal income tax on the amount of your Direct Loans that is forgiven after you have made the 120 qualifying payments.
We look forward to working with you while you learn more about PSLF and work toward your goal of making 120 qualifying payments. If you have any more questions, look at the PSLF fact sheet and the PSLF Q&A document or contact your federal loan servicer. If you don’t know the loan servicer for your federal student loans, visit My Federal Student Aid.
