Company Background

Roots in farming

Since its beginning providing policies to farmers in 1925, Nationwide has grown to become the 8th largest auto insurance carrier in the nation, writing auto coverage in all states except Alaska, Hawaii, Louisiana and Massachusetts. The famous “Nationwide is on your side” marketing slogan has been in use since 1966.

Nationwide has grown to offer far more than insurance. In 1997, Nationwide Financial went public and has grown to become a Fortune 100 company offering retirement plans, mutual funds and annuities.


Consider Nationwide for families or personal assessments

Under the Nationwide Family Plan, anyone living with you can receive the same discounts and benefits you’re entitled to. Parents, children, aunts, cousins – anyone who lives under your roof can enjoy the same insurance discounts you do, such as multi-car and multi-policy discounts. Teen drivers are still eligible for their own discount such as Good Student.

Nationwide’s On Your Side review is a personal assessment of your insurance needs with an agent. The agents can help you better understand your current coverage and help you understand how various life changes will change your coverage needs.

As a member, Nationwide will complete a free personal assessment annually – or any time you have a major life event, such as a wedding or buying a home. By completing an On Your Side review, agents are better equipped with the knowledge about your life to help find discounts for which you might be eligible.
