200 jobs will be leaving Topeka and heading to Iowa.

Life insurance company, Athene U.S.A. announced yesterday it is closing its 200 employee Topeka office and moving north.

The company acquired west Des Moines based Aviva U.S.a last year,  which they’re re-branding Athene U.S.A., the company is consolidating to west Des Moines.

Public Relations Manager, Steve Carlson says most of the employees in the Topeka office will be given the choice of relocating to Iowa.

The other employees will be given 60 days notice and a severance package.

We asked employees about the situation and all of them said they had no comments on the matter.
