I'm sorry to hear that your husband passed away recently, but the first thing you'll have to check-on is if he had a will and if he had any debt. In the UAE, all assets and bank accounts are frozen until debt is completely paid off. Even if he had a will constructed in another country, it will not apply in the UAE. Regarding the labour and life insurance benefits, I imagine it depends on the contract. I would recommend you contact a UAE lawyer familiar with these matters.
