Income for Life. Guaranteed.

What are variable annuities?

Annuities are long-term, tax-deferred investments designed to create a stream of income for retirement. An annuity can give you a stream of lifetime income in one of two ways: a process called annuitization, which doesn’t cost anything extra, or the purchase of an optional rider. The Nationwide Lifetime Income Rider® (Nationwide is an optional rider you can add to certain Nationwide variable annuities for an additional cost.
