Just a few weeks after their arrival, Peter Neumair then died suddenly and unexpectedly. His wife Doris found herself all alone and away from home with her two children. After this unexpected setback, the family received a lot of support from their personal network – and from Swiss Life.

Why Doris Neumair can now look to the future with confidence.

Doris Neumair still clearly remembers the moment her life changed. Her husband Peter, a client from Global Employee Benefits Solutions, was on business in Saudi Arabia and she stayed in their new home in Dubai and sent him a message. “I looked at my phone the next day and there were no blue ticks after the message. I immediately knew something was wrong.”

Her misgivings were well founded. Peter Neumair died of heart failure. “I panicked”, says Doris Neumair. She received support from her husband’s employer, which has employee cover from Swiss Life. “Swiss Life responded immediately. I received all the information promptly and everything was put in motion. The financial support was a big relief to us”, says Doris Neumair.
