Death of a Loved One

Here for you in times of need

The loss of someone you love is a time of grief, and in the midst of it all, there are legal and financial matters that need your attention. Whenever you're ready, we'll help guide you through the financial decisions that need to be made and provide helpful member resources for coping with loss.

Settling your loved one's estate

The emotional aftermath of losing a loved one can make it difficult to think about the practical matters at hand. You can put some tasks off for a bit, but settling your loved one's estate is something you should deal with sooner rather than later. Doing so will ensure assets, such as retirement accounts and insurance policies, are paid to the rightful beneficiaries.

If your loved one owned insurance or investment products, you’ll want to file a claim as soon as you can. If it was a Thrivent product, you can report online, call 920-628-6312 or notify your Thrivent financial professional.
