How do we calculate the amount that you are owed from your husband’s life insurance? This amount is made up of three parts. A total of CHF 251,081 was paid in. The share of the profit for the whole insurance term is also added, amounting to CHF 30,120. The subtotal of CHF 281,201 is the basis for the interest, which makes up the third part of the total amount. In order to make the payment, we need the following information.

Before


The amount of interest is determined on the basis of the available amount on the date of decease. This corresponds to the amount payable on the date of decease according to your spouse’s life insurance policy, and totals CHF 251,081. We will add CHF 30,120 to this amount due to a claim to a share of company profit which was incurred during the term, resulting in a total value of CHF 281,201. Please ensure that we receive the following documents within three weeks.

Plain language means we adapt your text to the generally understandable level B1.

Most texts that we encounter in our everyday life assume a good knowledge of the language: websites, brochures, manuals, contracts, insurance policies. Most people don’t understand them; 60% of people only have a middling grasp of a language (B1 level).
