Our Difference

What we do

We help clients develop retirement roadmaps that are as stress-free and tax-advantaged as possible.

We provide innovative solutions for people who want to retire with little to no tax liability and maximum social security income. We offer markets accounts with stop-loss allocations to minimize the downside risk of market volatility while taking advantage of the upside market potential. We can actively manage 401k plans for employees of certain companies while still employed at no cost to the employee. We offer a variety of fixed insurance retirement products that have protective floors of 0%, which insulates our clients’ wealth from market volatility, takes advantage of the upside and provides guaranteed lifetime income streams (often tax-free).

A Look Inside your retirement

Traditionally, 401k plans had to be managed by employers and could not be managed by outside financial firms. We, The Solution People, are now able to manage 401k and 457 plans for certain companies at no charge to the employee.


Social Security may have been around for nearly 100 years, but its rules have continuously changed with the times. As the benefit check averages shift (sometimes without warning), it can help to talk to a financial advisor who knows the ins and outs of this complicated system. If you live in North Central or Western Washington, The Solution People are there to help you maximize every penny of what you’re owed.

Taxfree retirement is more than just an empty promise or marketing gimmick. This financial strategy is based on everything from your primary asset classes to retirement goals. Whether you open up several trusts, defer capital gains, or explore municipal bonds, Tony Velickoff and Angela Gaston at The Solution People can help you get all of your finances in order, so that you don’t pay any more than you owe.
If you live in North Central or Western Washington, the term wealth management can be used in different ways by different people. In financial circles, it refers to how the wealthy can keep track of their assets. At The Solution People, you’ll meet financial advisors who can help you understand more about how this financial concept works and why it ultimately protects the holdings of highnetworth individuals.
