Above the free withdrawal amounts, a surrender charge (CDSC) will be applied. This will start at 7% for the first year afterwards reducing gradually to 0% in the eighth year.

Death benefit

Return of premium death benefit- This is available to annuitants at no extra cost. It ensures that at the annuitant’s death, beneficiaries receive at least the invested amount.

Spousal protection death benefit- Also available at no extra cost, this ensures that the surviving spouse can receive the death benefit or continue the contract.


The Nationwide Destination Navigator 2.0 annuity provides waivers for withdrawals made in case an annuitant encounters a long-term care or is diagnosed with a terminal condition from which they are not expected to recover. These are not available in all states. The enhanced surrender value for terminal illness feature allows the annuitant to receive their full death benefit before they pass away
