These days, it’s more likely than ever that you will need to rely on your own savings to cover basic expenses during retirement. We designed the Nationwide Lifetime Income Rider+SM suite (Nationwide L.inc+) to make this easier.

Add Nationwide L.inc+ to your variable annuity and it will help you convert part of your retirement savings into a protected income stream that will last for the rest of your life.1 And because of the variety of features and options it includes, you can structure your retirement income to match the way you want to live your life.

This suite of three optional riders is available on certain Nationwide variable annuities for an additional fee.

Which L.inc+ rider is right for you

See how a lifetime income stream tailored to your individual needs might help you live that retirement you envision.

A variable annuity is a contract purchased from an insurance company and is designed for long-term investing. It can offer several ways to generate retirement income include systematic withdrawals or annuitization, both available for no additional cost, or an optional rider like Nationwide L.inc+ that has an additional fee. The contract value of a variable annuity will fluctuate based on investment option performance. Investing involves market risk, including possible loss of principal. Variable annuities have some limitations, and you may be charged penalties if you take your money out early. Withdrawals may be subject to ordinary income taxes, and if you are under age 59½, you may also pay a 10% federal tax penalty. Fees and charges can vary. All guarantees and protections are subject to the claims paying ability of Nationwide Life Insurance Company.

Three riders offering guaranteed lifetime income1

Whether you want income security, additional growth potential for the future or a way to fill an income gap in retirement, Nationwide L.inc+ has an option that can help.
linc_icons_core

L.inc+ Core

It you want the certainty of consistent income throughout retirement, Nationwide L.inc+ Core may be right for you. It offers retirement income that will never decrease for the rest of your life, even if your contract value drops to zero.1

linc_icons_accelerated

L.inc+ Accelerated

If you want more income early in retirement and a wider range of investment options, Nationwide L.inc+ Accelerated may be right for you. It offers a higher initial income and a greater opportunity to capture market growth, but your income could decease in later years if your contract falls to zero.

linc_icons_max

L.inc+ Max

If you need most of your income in the early years of retirement to meet expenses or fill an income gap, Nationwide L.inc+ Max may be right for you. It offers the highest initial income and a wide range of investment options. If your contract value falls to zero, your income will drop significantly and remain at that lower level for the rest of your life.

Valuable features available on all three riders

Choose any of our L.inc+ rider options for your variable annuity and these important features will be available to help you further customize your retirement income.

Protection against market loss

We guarantee a 5% simple interest roll-up on your original income benefit base for the first 10 years or until the first lifetime withdrawal, whichever comes first.

Capturing your market gains

An annual step-up feature locks in your highest contract value on the rider anniversary if your investment options outperform the 5% simple interest roll-up rate.

linc_icons_access

Access to your investment

Before starting lifetime withdrawals, you may take one non-lifetime withdrawal without stopping the roll-up or locking in the lifetime withdrawal percentage.2
