    If their TPS status was denied,they are supposed to go home. They will no longer be authorized to live or work in the US. The SSN will be theirs for life,but they will have no use for it when they go home.

    The legal right to work was tied to TPS status, so no, the nonresident cannot use the SSN to work. If the nonresident is out of status, he or she is deportable.

    The social security card was probably limited to the period of his authorized employement and should not be used if he no longer has employment authorization. The card in itself is not employment

    authorization. The number can be used for income tax returns.
