Yes your name is required to form the family nucleus with your wife. As an essential occupier, the 5 year MOP needs to be observed as well. Unless your mother in law can finance the resale hdb on her sole name, otherwise it may be tough to fulfil the plan.
Or perhaps may I have more info and requirements about your plans so to make better recommendations? Thanks and look forward to value-add to your housing plans.

-- HDB BTO 4rm Sellers Mr. Farvin & Ms. Sel --
Ivan was the first agent that we met up with and right from the offset we had good vibes as he has a friendly personal approach, detailed working style and focuses on building the long-term relationship. He is a committed professional and has fast execution, so we felt assured that things are done well and we can entrust the sale process entirely to him.
We're looking to find an investment property next and will be glad to work with Ivan again for the long-term to restructure our property portfolio. He has become a friend now, and we are most happy to recommend his professional services to our loved ones and friends.
--- HDB Flat Upgraders Mr. & Mrs. Lee ---
We decided to engage Ivan as our agent as we were impressed with how he answered all our enquiries. He has helped us to find our ideal unit and also sold our current unit. He was very patient and never pushy when we were looking for our ideal unit. He would tell us that it is always important to find a unit that we really liked. Thanks Ivan! :)
-- Sellers of Exec Maisonette Gaffoor & Isha --
Buying or selling property is a big decision, as we wanted to make sure our agent is someone we can trust, get in touch with, and approachable. Ivan certainly fits the bill. He was available anytime of the day to answer our queries and was with us throughout the process. We have no reservations in recommending him. Read More
Should your Wife were to purchase the HDB flat, you will need to include your name either as a co-owner, or an essential occupier.
You could however use your Mother-in-Law's name (together with your Father-in-Law?) to purchase the HDB flat, while you and your Wife can purchase another property (HDB or condo).
Alternatively, you could also use your kids name to purchase the condo. There are many possibilities, and we could explore further in depth the options that are available to you.
I am experienced and well-versed in both private and HDB resale transactions. I will be able to assist you in your property plans. Please get in touch with me for a more in-depth discussion.
Should you need require further assistance in matters relating to property, please contact me at my mobile 9748 6305 . I will be happy to assess and share with you the possibilities for you in the current market.

From this enquiry, it seems that you are looking out to purchase 2 different properties, 1 for family stay and 1 for investment.
Given the existing price trend and projection, HDB market does not seem to be doing too well from investment perspective, unless you manage to secure grossly undervalue unit where you make an immediate gain.
With better understanding of your financial profile, we can perhaps look into other potential solutions to cater to your objectives?

As my colleagues have mentioned, buying a HDB requires you to form a family nucleus and therefore you will need to be included as an essential occupier which will result in a 5 year bar period during which you cant buy a private property.
Please feel free to contact me so that I can propose some possible solutions for you.

I was featured recently on Council for Estate Agencies (CEA) Newsletter:
I have written a guide on buying Residential Property:
Testimonial from Satisfied Clients
“Nick is a responsible, efficient and excellent salesperson. He has very good knowledge of the real estate market and I benefited a lot from his advice and sharing. He is extremely patient when guiding me through the buying process and I am happy to secure a dream house within my budget with his assistance. A highly recommended salesperson who made my house hunting journey a breeze.”
Ms Chia (Buyer)
“Nick provides a delightful customer experience from day one when I engage him as my agent to look for a flat of my choice to the completion of the deal. He is competent, resourceful and has a pleasant manner to work with. He is the Agent of my choice in dealing with properties and I would highly recommend him to others who would appreciate an agent that takes care and can give the customer a peaceful mind.”
“Nick is very pro-active in helping us to resolve whatever questions and problems that we encountered. All the issues are settled even before us having to request or ask for a second time. He was very frank and transparent with all the details, limitations and advantages that we wouldn’t have known. I think this is the most important virtue to be successful in this line. I will surely recommend him to anyone who needs his service because I trust that they will be equally satisfied!!”
Mr and Mrs Chan (Sold and Bought a property through Nick)
“We are very grateful to Nick for his extensive marketing efforts. With his comprehensive marketing plan, he helped us to achieve a record selling price within 2 weeks of listing our property for sale! We highly recommend his service to anyone who is keen to sell their properties.”
Mr & Mrs Wong (Property Seller)
“Nick has conducted himself ethically and professionally when handling the sales of our property. Thanks to his patience and perseverance, we managed to secure a sales price beyond our expectations.
We are very happy and satisfied with his services and will definitely recommend him to our friends and family in the future.”
