Hi. My name is***** can help you here.

...

Yes, an additional country's recognizing you as a citizen will not impair. threaten, stop your U.S. Social Security benefits.

...

There ARE places where you cannot have social seurity sent: Generally, they will not send U.S. Social Security payments to persons in Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Ukraine, and Uzbekistan.

...

Hungary, by the way IS one of the places where SSA will send benefits (as long as your benefits are based on your own work record).

Finally, it would only be IF you are actually RESIDING in Hungary, and ONLY if you are getting spousal or survivor benefits, (as opposed to benefits on your own work record) that you’ll have to show that you lived in the United States for at least five years.

...

If you continue to live in the US, however, none of things ar an issue. Additional Citizenshuip with Hungary wll nt affect your benefit

...

Please let me know if you have any questions at all.
