It depends on several factors. First of all if your entire working career has been as a teacher in one of the 14 states whose teachers do not pay into social security, then th…e answer would be that you would receive no social security benefit because you never paid any money into it. Now, lets say you work as a teacher for 15 years in a state whose teachers DO pay into social security, such as Pennsylvania. You then decide to work for 15 years as a teacher in Ohio whose teachers do NOT pay into social security. Once you retire, you would indeed get social security due to the fact you worked 15 years in PA and paid into SS. HOWEVER, you would take a hit (called the Windfall Provision) because you are also collecting money from Ohio's pension.

As long as you can qualify for each of them independently, YES. They are different programs that are not affected by the other.
No. It is a Federal program and has no boundaries.

The amount should not be affected at all. However, you might owe income taxes on your pension income to the State to which you are moving.
Are you penalized for moving from the state of Pennsylvania when you retire and collect your benefits?
If you're referring to unemployment benefits, you can't continue receiving them if you truly retire. If you mean Social Security benefits, they're Federal and where you live i…s immaterial to receiving them, so there's no penalty there.
Are Texas teachers who receive state retirement able to collect on husband's Social Security disability when they reach age 62?
no....because most teachers pay only into TRS (Teacher Retirement System) and not into SS, they will receive their TRS only...the government stopped a loop hole back in 2004 f…or receiving TRS and SS, because the government considers it double-dipping...so if a spouse paid into SS, the teacher cannot get spousal benefits from the spouse because it would be considered double dipping...there is a small chance that the teacher would be eligible for a small amount of her spouse's SS, or even her own if she worked her 40 quarters before teaching, but the amount would be subject to two penalties called the GPO and Windfall...please check your local SS office on more of these two penalties.
Yes, as long as you qualify for each of them individually.
Yes, because they are separate programs, you can collect from both as long as you qualify for both.
