Since the pandemic, the relevance of the MWPA act has been significantly increased in the insurance industry.
By purchasing a Life Insurance policy through the MWPA act, you are creating an asset for your family, and all the rights of that policy are confined only to your family. No one can supersede those rights.
The MWPA act protects your wife and children, wife alone, or children alone.
How does MWPA help us?
The purpose of buying life insurance is to protect your family, but that might not happen if you just buy a normal life insurance policy and leave behind a lot of debt for your family to deal with.
After a policyholder’s death, his creditors, government liabilities, or other debts are recovered by his/her policies. Creditors write a legal letter to his/her insurance provider, requesting the policy proceeds to recover their money.
And if you purchase a life insurance policy through the MWPA act, after your death, the policy proceeds will only go to your family and not your creditors.
In 1992. Harshad Mehta a well known Indian stockbroker, when no one was aware of this concept, Mr. Mehta bought an MWPA insurance of approximately 10 cores that went only to his family despite the government liabilities he had.
Buying a life insurance policy under the MWPA act is a really good opportunity for the ones working with the government. You can protect your family from liabilities like- GST, income tax, currency, ED issues, etc.
PS- The day you purchase this policy, no one except your family has the right over it, not even you. The policyholder cannot use this to purchase loans or to use it during maturity after withdrawing it.
