Nationwide To Offer Term Life Insurance Through Local Independent Agencies

New partnership with Nationwide Brokerage Solutions will drive growth, empower local agents and elevate customer experience

COLUMBUS, Ohio – Nationwide is partnering with Nationwide Brokerage Solutions (NBS) and its 14,500 affiliated local agencies to sell term life insurance to protect more people, businesses and futures with extraordinary care.

NBS affiliated agents will get access to Nationwide’s best-in-class underwriting process and products, delivering fast and competitive decisions and solutions to succeed in selling term life insurance.

The shared goal in this partnership is to drive greater awareness of the benefits and flexibility of term life insurance. Protecting one’s family during critical life stages in the event of an unforeseen circumstance is a common purchase reason. Another is business owners needing solutions for business succession, retirement and estate planning or key employee risk mitigation issues.

Additionally, living benefits imbedded in the term product design, including chronic, critical and terminal illness features allows one to access a portion of the death benefit when one of life’s unexpected events occurs. Policies can even be later converted to permanent insurance as needs change.

“By offering term life insurance through NBS agents, Nationwide builds upon our strategic goal of protecting more people,” said Andrew Burge, vice president of business development for Nationwide’s life insurance business. “Our partnership will create opportunities for NBS affiliated agents to market a broader array of financial solutions to their clients and customers.”

For nearly 50 years, NBS has connected local agents with industry-leading carriers, offering broad solutions, expertise and tools to protect families and businesses.
