Cover all bases and I should be fine

Thank you for taking the time to check in to that for me, much appreciated! I was always under the impression social security benefits were only for US citizens and I never questioned it because I was happy with things that way. I never planned or wanted to become a financial burden on America, it was my choice to move here afterall so I was happy to pay my taxes and dues to support my new homeland. And yes I have a SSN, work permit and local driving license, all that fun stuff

Wolfie, best of luck to you and your wife with the move and the whole immigration process. It can fell like a long drawn out process especially all the paperwork, background checks, medicals etc but it is well worth it and the USCIS are very helpful and friendly.

I'm still in two minds about surrendering my UK passport to become a US citizen when able to. Yes I love it here, love my wife, daughter (who was born here and is a US citizen) and stepdaughter but I still have alot of friends and family back in the UK and it would feel like I'm closing another door on them.

Heck, I have a truck on the drive that hasn't moved in over a year, a rifle, a refrigerator full of beer and an ever growing collection of hats. I'm as American as the next guy
