You do not purchase a Hybrid Annuity, Index Annuity, Immediate Annuity, or Fixed Annuity to win; you purchase one of these low-risk annuities so you don't lose. With a hybrid, index, immediate, or fixed annuity you are able to lock in your gains each year, keep what you have, and receive a reasonable rate of return while protecting your savings from stock market losses.
Hybrid Annuities are the newest within the family of Fixed Annuities, Index Annuities, and Immediate Annuities. The Hybrid Annuity has similar features to a Variable Annuity, too.
The Hybrid Annuity has a minimum guaranteed rate of return and has index crediting opportunities like an Index Annuity. Hybrid Annuities can provide a lifetime pension like an Immediate Annuity. All Hybrid Annuities provide safety of principal regardless of stock market performance.
The biggest difference is that the Hybrid Annuity gives you more flexibility than most other annuities with the ability to start and stop monthly income. If you don't need income from the annuity in a particular month, or even year, you can choose to not take it and, instead, let it remain in the annuity account.
This could increase your Income Account Value (IAV) due to interest credits from the Index Crediting Method that was deployed.
Hybrids also provide liquidity that could be used for income and cash flow in retirement. Let’s face it: We’re living longer. One of our clients’ biggest concerns is the fear of running out of income in their golden years.

Annuities are best suited for long term investors. Any strategy utilizing investments carries an inherent element of risk. Withdrawals from an annuity prior to age 59 1/2 are subject to a 10% tax penalty in addition to income taxes on earnings. Guarantees are based upon the claims paying ability of the underlying insurance agency.
