I am a 68 yrs. old male and my wife is 58. I want to set up a Hybrid Annuity with a $300,000 initial deposit. Hold for 10 years and then pull the trigger and create a stream of income for my wife of $40,000/yr. for the rest of her life. This is payable to both of us and continues upon my demise.

Based on the financial crisis going on in the world, and more particular in the USA, would this be a viable investment for our future given that we might have a currency crisis and the greenback could be worth $0?

If that happens, how would the Insurance Company continue to pay our monthly stream of income?

Thank You Garrett
