  • New death benefit features added to Nationwide Defined Protection RILA

    June 13, 2022 by Nationwide

    Columbus, OH – Nationwide announced today the launch of enhanced legacy features to the Nationwide Defined Protection® Annuity (DPA), a registered index-linked annuity (RILA).

    The two new death benefit features, which are available at no extra cost, are uniquely positioned to fit the emerging needs of financial professionals and their clients in today’s challenging economic environment.

    • Return of Premium (ROP) Death Benefit Feature – This feature guarantees beneficiaries will receive no less than the original premium invested in the annuity. It is automatically added if the annuitant and co-annuitant are both 75 or younger on the application sign date. 1
    • Spousal Protection Feature (SPF) – This feature protects both spouses and provides a death benefit on both of their lives, even on qualified contracts. 2

    “During this time, when markets are volatile and costs for most goods and services are increasing, we are excited to be able to offer these benefits to our customers at no additional charge,” said Eric Henderson, president of Nationwide Annuity. “Adding these features will make this a more attractive option for investors looking to protect their assets in uncertain markets, while enhancing the legacy they will pass to their loved ones.”

    Nationwide DPA, which was created with product development partner Annexus, the premier independent designer of indexed retirement solutions, also provides three defined protection levels which limit negative performance. This allows clients to select how much of their investment—90%, 95% or 100%—will be protected from market losses and helps determine their performance opportunities. 3 DPA also features a variety of index strategies that can offer upside potential and be tailored to fit a broad range of investment objectives.

    Financial professionals interested in Nationwide DPA should contact their Nationwide wholesaler or call the National Sales Desk at 1-800-321-6064. Individual investors interested in learning more about the benefits of defined protection should contact their financial professional or visit www.definedprotection.com.

    Under the Return of Premium Death Benefit, the Death Benefit is equal to the greater of the Contract Accumulation Value, or the purchase payment amount adjusted proportionately for any withdrawals.

    After the first spouse’s death, the surviving spouse may continue the contract and name new beneficiaries. From that point on, any withdrawals will be treated as Preferred Withdrawals, and will receive full gains/losses and will not be subject to CDSC or an MVA. If the contract contains the Return of Premium Death Benefit, upon the first spouse’s death, the Contract Accumulation Value will be set equal to the purchase payment amount (adjusted for withdrawals), if greater. Upon the surviving spouse’s death, the Death Benefit (including the ROP if applicable) will be paid to the beneficiaries. Please see the product prospectus for more detailed information.

    Please note that not all Strategies may be available at all times or in all states.  In addition, your firm may limit the Strategies that are available to you.  For more information on all available Strategies, please see the prospectus.
