Please keep in mind, excess withdrawals that reduce the contract value to zero will result in termination of the rider and contract. Guarantees are backed by the claims-paying ability of Nationwide Life and Annuity Insurance Company.

Please note that the range of payout percentages vary by rider. Once your lifetime income payments begin, the payout percentage is guaranteed not to change.

The DAV monitors the combined fluctuations of the elected strategy options and is the greater of (i) the contract value plus any strategy earnings that have not been credited to the contract, or (ii) the Return of Purchase Payment Guarantee amount.
