GN 01755.015 Coverage and Contributions under the Hungarian Social Security System
Hungarian social security extends coverage to every citizen who has income from gainful
employment, including employees and self-employed persons. The entire Hungarian population

The amount of a Hungarian benefit is set:
by income as the basis for contribution payment (income from 1988 up to retirement);
by the service period (contribution payment period and equivalent periods).
