Why it might be for you:
- No Adjusted Gross Income (AGI) contribution limits
- You think you will be in a lower tax bracket in retirement
- You aren’t currently covered by an employer-sponsored plan
An individual retirement account to which you make after-tax contributions and if you meet certain qualifications, can take earnings out tax-free.
Why it might be for you:
- Your 2015 adjusted gross income is less than $131,000 (2016: $132,000) for single tax filers or $193,000 (2016: $194,000) for joint filers
- You think you will be in a higher tax bracket in retirement
- You want to let your money remain invested as long as you want without being required to start withdrawals at a certain age
Simple is Putting All of Your Retirement Assets into One Place
The days of working for a single company your entire career have long passed. Chances are, you’ll have worked at a number of businesses by the time you retire. Which means that, like most people, you could have IRA and 401(k) assets scattered across several accounts and firms. Now may be the time to consider taking control of these important assets by rolling them into an IRA offered by Thrivent Mutual Funds.2 Potential benefits include:
Thrivent Mutual Funds provides a variety of investment options, some of which may not be available in your employer’s plan.
When all of your retirement savings are in one place, it's easier to manage your accounts and monitor your progress.
Continue tax advantages
Like your 401(k) or other retirement plan, a Thrivent Mutual Fund IRA offers important tax benefits.
Of course, your best option may be to leave your assets where they are. Keep in mind that rolling over assets to an IRA is just one of multiple options for your retirement plan.
When considering moving your retirement assets it’s important to review your needs and circumstances, and consider the following factors:
Investment Options & Fees
Compare the options you currently have with those available with Thrivent Mutual Funds, including investment fees and other expenses.
Plans and providers potentially offer a variety of account services you may want. Compare current services and conveniences to those available with Thrivent Mutual Funds.
Both IRAs and employer-sponsored plans may offer distribution options you want or need. Compare access to early withdrawals, loans, employer stock considerations, required minimum distributions and distribution frequency.
Generally, employer sponsored plans have unlimited protection from creditors under federal law. IRA assets are less protected and laws vary by state.LEARN MORE
Options for Moving Assets
Have your employer-sponsored retirement plan assets sent directly to your Thrivent Mutual Funds IRA with a Direct Rollover.
Or, take receipt of your retirement assets and deposit them into your IRA within 60 days with an Indirect Rollover. Keep in mind you will incur a mandatory 20% tax withholding for distributions from employer qualified plans and you are limited to one indirect rollover per 12 month period for all your retirement assets.
With an IRA to IRA Transfer you can move your retirement assets from your current IRA to a Thrivent Mutual Fund IRA.
If you’re looking at a Thrivent Mutual Fund Roth IRA, consider moving your retirement assets from your employer-sponsored plan or traditional IRA with a Roth IRA Conversion. You may have to pay federal or state income taxes on all or part of the conversion amount.LEARN MORELink to Making Sense of Rollovers and Transfers.
Ready to Rollover?
Follow these simple steps to make it happen and start investing with Thrivent Mutual Funds.
Research and gather what’s needed from your current plan sponsor or IRA custodian.
Identify and set up a Thrivent Mutual Fund IRA for your assets.
Complete the rollover request form on-line or in paper.

2You can roll over assets from an employer-sponsored retirement plan to an IRA if you experience one of the following triggering events (as permitted by the plan document): termination of service, retirement, reaching age 59½, disability, plan termination, death, or proceeds received from former spouse’s retirement plan due to a divorce.
Invest in the Next Generation
Custodial and education accounts are a great way to look after future generations. We offer the tools you need to help take care of a kid’s future the same way you take care of your own.
Things to keep in mind:
Time is on your side.
One of your greatest assets is your time. Starting early in saving is critical to lessening the financial impact that may occur when college starts.
Once it’s theirs, it’s theirs.
When an account is created in a child’s name, the fund can only be used for that child’s benefit.
They could gain access at age 18.
Through the Uniform Gifts to Minors Act (UGMA) or Uniform Transfers to Minors Act (UTMA), the child can access the money usually between the ages of 18-21.
In 2013, the average student loan debt was $28,400 per borrower.
