Our difference is you.
Fraternal membership allows those who are eligible to enjoy many benefits beyond Thrivent's financial expertise and solutions. With membership, you join a local Thrivent Member Network and become part of the collective ownership of our company. This means you get a say in how we are governed, and express that through annual elections of our board of directors. You also share a commitment to your community - spreading generosity. As part of your Thrivent Member Network, you can spread generosity through time, talent and treasures. By giving back, we're about to amplify our collective impact, together.

The Path to Membership
Depending on your needs, we offer two classes of membership: Associate Membership and Benefit Membership. Both provide a local, communal experience through the Thrivent Member Networks with fellow Christians who share your values and motivations. And with membership, you'll have access to a suite of benefits, tools and resources to help you live more generously - and impact the communities you're a part of.
Become an associate member by submitting a valid membership application and paying an annual fee of $19.95 or purchasing a product from a Thrivent affiliate or subsidiary (such as a Thrivent Mutual Fund product) or joining the Thrivent Credit Union.
Become a benefit member by submitting a valid membership application and purchasing a qualifying Thrivent insurance or annuity product, like disability income or life insurance.
Eligibility for Membership
We warmly extend a hand to individuals who are Christian, seeking to live out their faith; or are spouses of Christians, who seek to live out their faith; or are youths being raised in the Christian faith.
What is a fraternal organization?
To be a fraternal benefit society, there must be a common bond that unites members. For Thrivent, that bond is Christianity - embracing faith, finances and charitable giving. Fraternal benefit societies must also have local, member branches that carry out the organization's good works in local communities. For Thrivent, these branches are the Thrivent Member Network. Thrivent clients with memberships also have a voice in how our company is governed, by electing the national and Thrivent Member Network boards, and they have a responsibility to give back where they live, work and worship. Thrivent membership is empowering, as you help yourself and others achieve financial clarity, and live generous lives.
