Embark on Your Financial Journey: Your Central Illinois Financial Navigator

Welcome to my website! I'm Gary Cates, an Associate Representative with Thrivent Financial serving Central Illinois. With six years of experience in the Illinois Army National Guard, including a deployment to Afghanistan in 2019, I'm dedicated to serving my community in a new capacity.

At Thrivent, I'm committed to making a positive impact on people's lives through their finances. I've witnessed firsthand the importance of effective financial planning and the consequences of poor decision-making. My mission is to provide the guidance and support needed to turn your financial goals into reality.

I specialize in serving service members of the United States, veterans, transitioning service members, families, college students, young professionals, and individuals. Whether you're planning for retirement, saving for your child's education, or navigating life's financial challenges, I'm here to help.

As your trusted associate representative, my goal is to offer clarity on your current financial situation and confidence in your future. Let's work together to create a personalized financial plan that aligns with your goals and values.

Schedule a free consultation today to take the first step toward securing your financial future. I look forward to helping you achieve your financial goals!
