Do your part to protect your retirement account

You’ve worked hard to save for retirement. Nationwide is taking thorough measures and using up-to-date technology to help protect your account on our end. But hackers may not be trying to get in our door — they may be trying to get in yours.

The best defense is to go on the offense with proactive steps to increase your protection. We recommend you consider doing the following three things:

Create an online account

Before a hacker attempts to create a fraudulent account in your name, set up a legitimate one of your own. That puts up a barrier on this potential hacking path.

Sign up for paperless statements

Paper statements can be a risk if stolen from your mailbox or left out where others may see the information. But with paperless statements, you access your information through your private, online login. Bonus: You’ll save a tree.

Enable Nationwide® Account Lock

Nationwide Account Lock adds an extra layer of protection that allows you to control distributions, especially if you suspect fraud.

  • You control when to lock and unlock your account to manage distributions
  • You receive notifications every time a distribution is requested from your account
  • You can receive this optional layer of protection at no additional cost by calling us
