Members work with Thrivent to develop financial strategies around various goals or life events such as retirement, birth of a child, saving for college, career change or illness, notes the bank's official website. Available products range from life insurance, disability income insurance and long-term care insurance to annuities, mutual funds and individual retirement accounts. Thrivent also provides financing for building, expanding or remodeling church properties.
Thrivent began operating after the 2001 merger of the Lutheran Brotherhood and Aid Association for Lutherans. Those organizations trace their origins back more than a century, reports Thrivent's website. The organization had more than 2 million members as of 2016 and has its headquarters in Minneapolis.
In addition to financial services, Thrivent also provides members with free identity monitoring. Members also organize themselves into volunteer action teams to respond to community needs. Thrivent Action Teams execute one-time fundraisers, service activities or educational events, the bank's website notes. Members of the Action Team receive $250 stipends to help pay for supplies or promotional materials.Learn more about Financial Planning
