About Benjamin Rust

I'm proud to be a Thrivent financial professional. I provide personalized financial guidance to people at all stages of life. At Thrivent, we view money not as a goal, but as a tool — one that can afford you a life rich in meaning and gratitude. We believe humanity thrives when individuals make the most of all they've been given. I'm here to help you do just that.

Born and raised in Chadron, NE and proud to raise my two fantastic sons, Zander and Tobin, here too.  I love the refreshing atmosphere of the outdoors in western Nebraska, the Black Hills of South Dakota and the beautiful reservoirs in Wyoming.  My hobbies include fishing and playing pool, both for fun and competitively. 

Almost 4 years ago, I began a career at Thrivent to be part of a company whose principles and ethics align with my own honest, trustworthy, committed to helping others and being proud to be a Christian.  My continued passion for this work comes from the pride I have in helping families develop and accomplish goals big and small and protecting the hard working individuals in our area from financial setbacks or obstacles that may happen.  I am here to assess not only your financial picture but what’s important to you—whether it’s your family, faith, or giving back.  

I look forward to meeting new members, while serving and helping our current members, and building lasting relationships because I know that better experiences start with better relationships.  Let’s start building that relationship today – it might be over a cup of coffee or casting a rod, whatever works for you!
