"United Income aims to help users solve the problem of how they will handle their spending in retirement."

Taken from this entry in Angel List. 

"It is a hybrid service, meaning one that offers access to human advisors who rely heavily on financial software."

Founder Matt Fellowes envisions a continuum of services —ranging from free access to planning software; to individualized advice for a fee; to investment and money management for a percentage of assets. United Income intends to function as an SEC registered investment advisor meeting a fiduciary standard."

Fellowes promises United Income will integrate all sources of potential income in a way current  retirement planning software doesn’t and will incorporate a range of factors, including individualized life expectancy and retirement and tax policy insights gained from its location in Washington.

The target market is the middle and upper-income bracket who are not exclusively relying on Social Security but do have to consider trade-offs when spending their retirement nest egg.

What is a provocation or insight that might inspire others during this challenge?

What financial services/products do the 50+ need to ensure a stable income in retirement? How can we provide services that have the human touch the 50+ want but are also efficient, accurate and low cost? What are the areas the 50+ are having problems with in terms of planning for their retirement and budgeting once they are retired?
