TN 7 (10-16)
RS 02002.320 U.S.-Hungarian Agreement
A. Effective date of the Hungarian Agreement
The agreement with Hungary became effective on September 1, 2016.
B. Effect on coverage
If both the U.S. and Hungarian Social Security systems cover a worker’s employment or self-employment, the agreement provides that beginning September 1, 2016, only one country’s system covers the worker’s employment or self-employment. The agreement does not affect a worker’s coverage prior to that date. If a worker had dually covered earnings before September 1, 2016, those earlier earnings were and would continue to be subject to social security contributions in both countries.
