Nationwide Life Insurance
About Nationwide Life Insurance
Since the early days as an Ohio based mutual auto insurer in 1925, Nationwide Insurance has expanded to become one of the largest insurance companies in the world. Today, Nationwide has grown to include financial services such as Nationwide Bank.
Nationwide provides four basic types of life insurance: term life, whole life, universal life and variable universal life. Term life insurance is a policy that is temporary and lasts for a period of time such as 10, 15, 20 or 30 years. Whole life insurance is a permanent life insurance policy that offers long-term protection, has fixed premiums and builds cash value. Universal life insurance is permanent with flexible premiums and lets the insured accumulate cash value and take out tax-free loans. Variable universal life insurance has death benefit protection with investment features that can help the insured invest for retirement.
Nationwide Mutual Insurance Company & Affiliated Companies is a group of large U.S. insurance and financial services companies based in Columbus, Ohio. On December 17, 1925, the Ohio Farm Bureau Federation incorporated the Farm Bureau Mutual Automobile Insurance Company in Columbus, Ohio.
Nationwide currently has about 36,000 employees and is ranked #105 in the most recent Fortune 100.
On September 24, 2007, Columbus Children's Hospital was rededicated as Nationwide Children's Hospital in response to a $50 million donation to the hospital by Nationwide.
