They are not eligible for any major decisions, but their job stays with them for several years. They have to keep all the information secretive, which is more important for the country. There are specific rules that they have to follow from driving cars to different aspects of their life till the state funeral arrangements:

Establish A Presidential Library

Presidential Library officially started in 1939 with President Franklin Roosevelt giving all his personal and presidential documents to the federal government. Roosevelt set up the public repository to preserve presidential evidence for future generations on renowned historians and academics. The aim is to ensure that all these irreplaceable objects are kept and made available to researchers for maximum use. Then the Presidential Library Act in 1955 made it mandatory that every president follows these rules. It will be legally public property as it features every information they have written in office, whether it is wrong or good. Every president is eligible to have a name after their name.
