I am a natural-born US citizen, now retired, drawing Social Security retirement benefits, and living in NZ. Within 2 years I will have been in NZ for 5 years, and will be eligible to apply for NZ citizenship. I have not yet decided that I will or that I will not apply. Every year I receive a questionnaire from the Social Security Administration which asks for information updates. Among the questions it asks is: "Have you taken on a new citizenship?" (or words to that effect). My thoughts are that if they ask the question, there must be some reason, and possibly some consequence if I say "yes". Does anyone know if taking on a new citizenship while receiving SS retirement has an impact on those benefits? Will they be stopped? Decreased? Stay the same? If no one has an answer, can they point me to a source that might? I am reluctant to just ask the SSA.
