Career Change

Starting a new job or career is exciting, but it can also be stressful. From wondering what to do with your
401(k) or other retirement savings to understanding changes in your family's benefits coverage, there's a lot to think about. Tailored guidance from Thrivent Financial can help make your career change or job transition easier.

Time to review & revamp

When you change jobs, it's a good time to review your current financial strategies and make any changes to reflect this new phase of your career. We can help you weigh your options.

Make sense of retirement accounts when changing jobs

A career change may mean you'll need to decide what to do with your
401(k)s or other retirement accounts with your previous employer. One option is to move them into a single individual retirement account (IRA) – a process known as an IRA rollover. Consolidating your qualified accounts can cut down on paperwork and help simplify your retirement savings plan. Plus, a rollover to an IRA lets you keep your tax-deferred status and offers some tax and investment advantages that other retirement accounts may not.

  • Continued tax-deferred growth potential.
  • Investment options for growth or income.
  • Retirement asset protection.

Find a source for health insurance if you're not covered

A job loss or career change may leave you with a gap in your health insurance coverage. To avoid a lapse in coverage, consider getting health insurance from Thrivent. We offer a variety of health coverage plans in many states through brokerage arrangements. Contact your Thrivent Financial representative to see if our health insurance plans are available in your state.

  • Get many of the features usually found in group plans.
  • Choose a plan that's appropriate for you and your family.

Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men.
