No. You are disqualified because you were fired.

If you are receiving social security retirement benefits because of your age, but you have not really retired, and you are trying to get another job, then yes.
If you are receiving social security disability benefits, no, because getting disability benefits means you are unable to work, and a person unable to work is never eligible for unemployment.

Depends on the reason you were terminated, if you were fired for cause you are not eligible for unemployment
SS has no bearing

Yes, if you are available for full time work and are seeking work and if you were terminated through no fault of your own. If you mean SS retirement, yes. If you mean welfare or disability you have to check with the appropriate agency.

SS benefits have nothing to do with unemployment. If you were fired for a good reason you would not be eligible. Like if you did something wrong to cause it. If for no reason then yes if you've worked long enough to have enough credits.

if you were fired, you are not likely to be eligible for unemployment
receiving SS has nothing to do with your eligibility for unemployment
