I'd think they're good at any temple. But do check and see if there's an expiration date on that.

You'll need to call the temple to set an appointment for your sealing. When you call, the temple might be able to answer your question.

Getting a recommend and then getting sealed in a different state is a fairly common occurrence. (Think about all of the college students who get recommends in their YSA wards.) You shouldn't have any issues.

The only thing to watch out for is that you have your interview with the bishop and stake president in the same stake. Changing stakes in the middle of that process can cause problems.

Also, be aware that when you got for a temple interview, if you've been in the unit less than one year, the bishop has to check with your prior bishop.

As such, I'd think you'd be better off getting the recommend before you move, since afterwards there will be an added step to the process.

Online access is in the Ward Directory. Click your household, then click your name. At the bottom of the pane with your name and contact information are three tabs: Membership Information, Ministering, and Callings and Classes. Select the Membership Information tab and scroll down to see your temple recommend status and expiration date below the Temple Recommend section title.

You can also see your own recommend expiration date in Member Tools.

And in Member Tools you can set a reminder that "it will expire in: 2 weeks, 4 weeks, 6 weeks, or 8 weeks." To set the reminder, go to Settings and scroll down near the bottom (on the Android version). iOS should be similar but I don't have iOS to check.
