Get a variable annuity that can help you prepare for retirement with tax-deferred growth and varied investment choices.

Nationwide Destination® Navigator 2.0 is a variable annuity that can help you accumulate assets for retirement. Once you're retired, you can take income from your balance. Should you pass away unexpectedly before annuitization occurs, a death benefit will be paid to your beneficiary.

Keep in mind that if you take withdrawals before you're 59½, you may have to pay a 10% tax penalty in addition to ordinary income taxes. Early withdrawals may be subject to ordinary income taxes. They may trigger early surrender charges and reduce your death benefit and cash value.

4-Year L-Share Liquidity Option

A contingent deferred sales charge (CDSC) pays for sales expenses such as commissions, promotions and sales materials. It’s deducted from your cash value if you end your contract before the end of your surrender charge period.

By adding a 4-Year L-Share Liquidity Option to your annuity, you can cut the number of years a CDSC applies from 7 to 4. After year 4, you have the option to withdraw money with no CDSC.

[1] All withdrawals or partial surrenders will reduce the death benefit in the same proportion the contract value was reduced.

[2] Available after the first contract year. When the option is exercised, Nationwide terminates the annuity and pays the owner an amount equal to the death benefit available on the date the form was presented in good order. This is a withdrawal and exercising this option prior to age 59½ may result in a 10% early withdrawal federal tax penalty; earnings may be subject to income taxes.

When evaluating the purchase of a variable annuity, you should be aware that variable annuities are long-term investment vehicles designed for retirement purposes and will fluctuate in value; annuities have limitations; and, investing involves market risk, including possible loss of principal.

A variable annuity is a contract you buy from an insurance company. It's designed to help accumulate assets to provide income for retirement. It will fluctuate in value based on the performance of the underlying investment options. You should also know that all guarantees and protections of a variable annuity are subject to the claims-paying ability of the issuing insurance company.

Annuities do have limitations. You may be charged a penalty if you take your money out early, if you're not yet 59½ (additional 10% tax penalty), or both. Variable annuities have fees and charges that include mortality and expense, administrative fees, contract fees, and the expense of the underlying investment options.

Variable products are sold by prospectus. Both the product prospectus and underlying fund prospectuses can be obtained from your investment professional or by writing to Nationwide Life Insurance Company, P.O. Box 182021, Columbus, OH 43218-2021. Before investing, carefully consider the fund's investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses. The product prospectus and underlying fund prospectus contain this and other important information. Read the prospectuses carefully before investing.

Guarantees and protections are subject to Nationwide Life Insurance Company's claims-paying ability. They don't apply to the investment performance or safety of the underlying investment options. Underlying subaccounts are only available as investment options in variable insurance contracts issued by life insurance companies. They are not offered directly to the general public.
