Start Saving Today for Your Retirement

The Ohio State University encourages you to start saving today for your future. A Defined Contribution 403(b) Retirement Plan with Nationwide® can help meet your needs.

By putting a portion of your salary into a 403(b) plan with Nationwide, you may be one step closer to reaching your retirement goals.

Nationwide is headquartered in Columbus, Ohio, and has worked with private and public sector employees for more than 30 years. We’ll give you the tools and information to help you feel confident about investing for retirement.


Enjoy tax-deferred investing

With a 403(b) plan, you don’t pay taxes on what you contribute or any earnings you may accumulate until you withdraw your money. This may lower your taxable income currently. If you elect a Roth, then this tax deferred feature does not apply.

Plus, when you choose to invest with Nationwide, you also get these benefits:

  • Service you can count on – Our participant call center representatives, based in Columbus, Ohio, are available to help answer questions about your account.
  • Choice – You can select an asset mix aligned to the time frame in which you plan to retire or research and choose your own funds from a wide variety of fund families.
  • Access – You’ll also have 24/7 access to your account via our participant website or our interactive phone response system for account information and transactions and statements.

Keep in mind investing involves market risk.


Take action today

In the last 80 years, Nationwide has gone from a small auto insurer for Ohio farmers to one of the largest insurance and financial services companies in the world with more than $157 billion in statutory assets.

Our Midwestern roots and conservative heritage have given us solid risk management competencies that only 15% of insurance companies share with us.*
