Fixed annuities let you save for retirement with:

  • A tax deferral on earnings
  • Access to your money (withdrawals made before age 59½ are generally subject to a 10% early withdrawal federal tax penalty, in addition to ordinary income tax, and a contingent deferred sales charge – CDSC – may apply)
  • Death benefits for your beneficiaries

What is a fixed annuity?

Growth paired with control

Fixed annuities protect your money from market ups and downs with guaranteed rates

Tax advantages

The value of your fixed-deferred annuity grows tax free, meaning you won't get a yearly tax bill on your earnings. (You'll have to pay tax on earnings once you start taking income, though.)

Income you can’t outlive

An annuity is the only investment that can guarantee income for life no matter how long you live.

Nationwide’s market value adjusted annuity product

Some fixed annuities feature a market value adjustment (MVA) that offers flexibility of various guarantee terms combined with the potential for higher interest yields that traditional fixed investments.

We’re proud to offer Nationwide Platinum Edge®, our fixed annuity product with the MVA feature. Talk with your financial professional to help determine if this is the right investment strategy for you.
