To help improve the health and economic security of older adults, Nationwide® has been a collaborative partner with the National Council on Aging (NCOA) since 2019. Due to the work accomplished during this partnership, NCOA awarded Nationwide the Public-Private Partnership Award at the 2022 Trailblazer in Aging Awards. This award recognizes organizations that have established powerful partnerships that build bridges between the public and private sectors to empower all to age well.
Together, Nationwide and NCOA have reached hundreds of thousands of older adults across the country. The organizations partnered to create the Age Well Planner, an online tool that offers personalized resources and expert help to support aging adults. Additional collaboration efforts focus on retirement research initiatives and Medicare education.
"Our powerful partnership with NCOA is based on our shared values and passion for helping more Americans achieve a secure retirement," said Kristi Rodriguez, senior vice president of the Nationwide Retirement Institute®. "Whether that’s focusing on the unique financial planning needs of women or the broader population of those planning for or living in retirement, we’ve found some great opportunities to work together to advocate for retirement savers and help them plan for the future."
Rodriguez and Ramsey Alwin, NCOA’s President and CEO, recently shared insights and advice to help women overcome the challenges of longevity in retirement, long-term care, and caregiving.
