Nitpick: The 10 years protection rule was rather brief. Barack Obama signed the law reinstating it back to life for SS protection in 2013 and it is retroactive for both him, George W Bush and also applies all future Presidents. I don't know of anything in the law (The Former Presidents Act also known also as FPA; 3 U.S.C. 102) that puts any conditions on the various benefits it provides to former Presidents. I suppose that could be changed by Congress in the future but that limitation doesn't exist right now.
