Nationwide puts a top priority on protecting private customer information. Nationwide responded immediately with a security patch to fix the issue, and there has been no indication of any passwords having been compromised or malicious activity found to date.
Given the wide exposure of the Heartbleed vulnerability, we strongly recommend you change your password. To change your password, you must log in to your online account.
Please review the following password tips. These are especially important if you use the same password across more than one website.
Contact us if you have further questions or concerns. You can reach us weekdays 8am-8pm EST at 1-877-422-6569, log in and message us via Message Center or at www.nationwidebank.com/CustomerService.
A trust account allows one person to manage an account on behalf of another. To open a trust account with Nationwide Bank, please call 1-877-I Bank NWSM (1-877-422-6569). You can also fax your information to us at 1-800-816-9170.
You’ll need to have this information handy when you call:
- Trust paperwork that includes the legal names of all parties (the first and last pages plus the powers for the trust)
- Name, address, date of birth, driver’s license number with issue and expiration dates for all parties involved in the trust account
It’s also important to note that as a result of an FDIC rule, virtually any beneficiary may qualify for beneficiary coverage. Depositors can now designate a beloved friend, life partner or relative outside of the immediate family group. This FDIC rule also covers beneficiaries that are charitable organizations or nonprofit entities recognized under the Internal Revenue Code.
Typically, there are two common causes for difficulty with logging in: pop-up blockers and the latest version of Internet Explorer.
- Pop-up blockers. Most web browsers let you block annoying pop-up advertisements. However, online banks and credit cards companies use pop-ups to help customers manage their accounts. If you're having trouble, you'll need to disable the pop-up blocker so you can log in to Nationwide Bank.
- How do you disable the pop-up blocker? That depends on what web browser and toolbar you are using. For Internet Explorer, for example, you would select the Tools pull-down menu, then Pop-Up Blocker, then Turn Off Pop-Up Blocker.
For Yahoo toolbar, look for the pop-up blocker icon, an image of a webpage with a shield in front of it. Click on the tiny arrow next to the icon to display the menu. If there is a checkmark next to Enable Pop-Up Blocker, click on it to make the checkmark disappear.

With the Expedited Payments feature, you have the flexibility to send electronic payments the same day, or to send a check overnight. Bill payment requests made before 3 p.m. ET are processed the same day the request is made. To get started, click “Bills & Payments,” then “Expedited Payment.”

When you use the Visa debit card for purchases at a merchant featuring the Visa logo, you do not need to provide a personal identification number (PIN). An ATM or direct debit point-of-sale transaction requires a PIN.
Please notify Nationwide Bank before you travel abroad to temporarily authorize your card where allowed by law. (Certain restrictions may apply.) To combat an increase in international counterfeit credit cards, Nationwide Bank has blocked use of our checking Visa debit card and ATM cards in Cuba, Iran, Sudan and Syria.
Your card is valid through the end of the expiration month listed on the card. For example, a card that expires June 2013 is valid through June 30, 2013. Your new card will be sent to you within the last two weeks of the expiration month.
