Nationwide has been in business for over 90 years and is one of the country's highest-rated insurance companies in terms of its financial strength.

Customer Experience

Customer Experience - 8 / 10

The company is accredited by the BBB, with an A+ rating. It has a very low NAIC ratio of 0.38, suggesting a much smaller than average number of consumer complaints than usual for a comparably-sized company. As a legacy insurer, Nationwide gives its customers the options of interacting through call-based agents as well as via the internet or phone. The company's website provides functional, essential services.
