Hyundai timing belt replacement

In November of 2005 I had a timing chain replacement both sides. This was due to a tapping noise in the engine. At the time I had 50,000 miles.
I now have 61,000 miles and the dealer is telling me that I need a timing belt replacement as part of my 60,000 service. Is the timing chain and belt the same thing? I have a 2001 Hyundai Sante Fe.
Thank You for taking the time to answer my question.

Do you
have the same problem?

There is no timing chain on the vehicle. There is only the timing belt and if you had that replaced you are good to go.
