If you incur major expenses due to sickness, you may be entitled to a special allowance.

The rule on special allowances for major sickness expenses was abolished with effect from the 2012 income year. This means that you can only claim the special allowance for sickness expenses if you received the special allowance for both 2010 and 2011.
