These ratings and rankings reflect rating agency assessment of the financial strength and claims-paying ability of Nationwide Life Insurance Company and Nationwide Life and Annuity Insurance Company. They are not intended to reflect the investment experience or financial strength of any variable account, which is subject to market risk. Because the dates are only updated when there’s a change in the rating, the dates above reflect the most recent ratings we have received. They are subject to change at any time.
This material is not a recommendation to buy, sell, hold or roll over any asset, adopt an investment strategy, retain a specific investment manager or use a particular account type. It does not take into account the specific investment objectives, tax and financial condition or particular needs of any specific person. Investors should discuss their specific situation with their financial professional.
This policy allows for flexible premium payments, but it’s important to adequately fund it to keep it in force and to help meet your needs and those of your beneficiaries.
Indexed universal life insurance policies are not stock market investments, do not directly participate in any stock or equity investments, and do not receive dividends or participate in capital gains. Past index performance is no indication of future crediting rates. Also, be aware that interest crediting fluctuations can lead to the need to pay additional premium to meet your goals and/or prevent the policy from lapsing. Be sure to choose a product that meets long-term life insurance needs, especially if personal situations change — for example, marriage, birth of a child or job promotion. Weigh the costs of the policy, and understand that life insurance has fees and charges that vary with sex, health, age and tobacco use. Riders that customize a policy to fit individual needs usually carry an additional charge.
All guarantees and benefits of the insurance policy are backed by the claims-paying ability of the issuing insurance company. They are not backed by the broker/dealer and/or insurance agency selling the policy, or by any of their affiliates, and none of them makes any representations or guarantees regarding the claims-paying ability of the issuing insurance company. Nationwide and its representatives do not give legal or tax advice. An attorney or tax advisor should be consulted for answers to specific questions.
While ratings can be objective indicators of an insurance company’s financial strength and can provide a relative measure to help select among insurance companies, they are not guarantees of the future financial strength and/or claims-paying ability of a company. The broker/dealer from which a policy is purchased, the insurance agency and any affiliates of those entities make no representations regarding the quality of the analysis conducted by the rating agencies. The rating agencies are not affiliated with the abovementioned entities nor were they involved in any rating agency’s analysis of the insurance companies.
