Can An Income-Management Software Save Money For Retirees?

Kindur Introduces SmartDraw to help Boomers keep more of their money in retirement;

Retirees can earn an extra $61,000 in retirement with their personalized withdrawal strategy

October 18, 2019 — NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Today, Kindur has officially launched SmartDraw, a subscription service designed to empower baby boomers to retire fearlessly. With Kindur’s intuitive technology and the option to connect directly with a licensed financial advisor, SmartDraw enables customers to extend the life of their retirement nest egg. SmartDraw helps clients avoid unexpected fees and penalties, tax-efficiently withdraw funds from multiple retirement accounts and navigate the maze of everchanging retirement regulations. Kindur customers can use this tool to create a monthly retirement paycheck, so that managing finances in retirement is as simple as when one was working.

“When the stakes are this high, we’re excited to help our customers move past rules of thumb and make sure they are creating a retirement income plan that specifically addresses their fact pattern,” said Rhian Horgan, Kindur founder and CEO. “Millions of Americans transitioning out of the workforce face a web of new tax codes, regulations and deadlines with high-consequence penalties. Even for individuals who’ve done well managing their finances throughout their working lives, today’s retirement is completely different than any other generation has faced and requires a new approach.”

A $61,000 Solution

With this new subscription service, retirees can access expert advice and guidance starting at less than a hundred dollars a year. For a portfolio with one million dollars, this financial expertise can add up to $61,000 in additional lifetime value over the course of retirement.

Recent research from the World Economic Forum found that in the U.S., the average retiree has enough savings to cover just under ten years of expenses in retirement. Factors like increased longevity, particularly for women who have longer life expectancy, along with a structural move away from pensions, has required individuals to more strategically manage their entire financial picture in retirement.

A Personalize Financial Experience
By selecting between three strategically designed packages, customers can utilize Kindur’s proprietary SmartDraw technology for a personalized experience that matches their specific needs. Each package includes key services that provide tax efficiency, clarity and peace of mind, for less than the cost of a single hour with an advisor. Customers can choose between the Select ($99/year), Premium ($149.99/year), and Concierge ($299.99/year) packages that include services such as:
