Friends – can you have any such scheme – that can give your family such a high returns and MOST IMPORTANT – A SENSE OF PARTICIPATION?


As on today we have about 6673 members.



  1. Form, duly completed, with endorsement from the Hon. Secretary / President of Local Branch, to certify you to be a Life member of the I.M.A. – Branch.
  2. Copy of Life membership Certificate form HQ.
  3. Age Proof – Certified Copy of School leaving Certificate / Passport / Birth Certificate from Municipality or Gram Panchayat.
  4. Multicity – payable at par Cheque / D.D. for appropriate amount.
  5. The name of the nominee, is a MUST, if more than one nominee, specify the % SHARE of for each. Disputes of any kind will be under jurisdiction of  Mumbai Courts only.

You can also pay ADVANCE DEPOSIT TOWARDS FFC & ANNUAL SUBSCRIPTION in multiples of Rs. 5000/- (Rs. 5000/- , 10000/-, 15000/- etc.) without any interest. The office will deduct the outstanding payment every year & send the statement of their balance deposit. This is totally VOLUNTARY. In case of death of a member the deposit will be refunded to the nominee along with death benefit claim amount. This will spare members from the annual exercise to pay FFC in time & threat of deletion.


Be a member of I.M.A. M.S. S.S.S. and motivate your friends to join the Scheme.

      It is beneficial to you, your family, your friend and his family too. 


 I also suggest joining the National Social Security Scheme of IMA – HQ, having its office at Ahemedabad.               This Scheme is also working on the same line as IMA MS SSS., with little different method of calculation. The last nominee was paid about Rs. 5,31.000/ – in March 2013. From 1st April 2013 onwards it increase to more than about Rs. 9,75,000/ -.
