It is sad truth that most of the doctors are poor in financial planning. At the time of sad demise or permanent disability of the earning member (doctor), the entire family collapses both mentally and financially. To sail through this critical, devastating and sometimes humiliating situation IMA floated a novel scheme, i.e. The Social Security Scheme (SSS). The Scheme formulated by IMA members for members, & managed by members. The primary aim of the scheme is to deliver immediate financial support to the bereaved or distressed family.


The scheme is based on a quote ‘many drops form an ocean’. Like an extended family, every member of the SSS gives his / her individual contribution to the nominee or the member.


About the scheme (IMA MS SSS)


The SSS covers the risk of uncalled death / permanent disability of our fellow brothers / sisters. The permanent disability may be mental and / or physical due to which the doctor is unable to continue his practice permanently & earning.
