Columbus, OH - The City of Philadelphia recently named Nationwide as its exclusive 457(b) and 401(a) retirement plans provider. Together, the plans serve approximately 21,700 participants with $1.1 billion in assets as of Dec. 31, 2017. 

Those participants are a broad range of city employees. In addition to recordkeeping and administrative services, Nationwide will provide education and communications programs designed to engage and motivate participants to prepare for retirement.
