disability annuity
Explanation:
This term "sjukränta" seems to appear almost exclusively as a contrast to "livränta" which leads me to believe it's used primary to make a distinction between annuity payments that one receives for the rest of one's life vs. those that one receives during the time that one is disabled.

You could use "pension" as you have above, but remember that "pension" is a wider term that encompasses annuity inside it. It seems like the author wanted to specify annuity rather than pension - or else (s)he would have said "pension".

In any case, if you are going to use "annuity" for the first term, you ought to use it for the second since the terms are in parallel.
