Bus/Financial - Finance (general) / taxation of insurance
Swedish term or phrase: R-karens
For insurance qualifying period for insurance covering both illness insurance and income protection (incapacity for work, etc.). R-karens is if you choose payment to apply only to illness. Is it 'flexible qualifying period' or something like that, i.e. you can choose?
Advice appreciated.
