Things you Need to Know About TSA PreCheck

What is TSA PreCheck?


TSA PreCheck is really one of the best things EVER especially if you are a frequent traveler. It expedites the screening process through airport security checkpoints when departing from U.S. airports.


How Does TSA PreCheck Work?

When approved for TSA PreCheck you pass through security through a designated lane and you do not have to remove carry-on liquids, shoes, jackets, or laptops from your carry-on items.


The last time we flew, I used my TSA PreCheck and I got through security 20 minutes faster than the rest of our party. 20 minutes! On top of that, the airport wasn’t that busy so the time savings would have been significantly more during high travel periods.


What Do I Need to Know About TSA PreCheck?

Available to U.S. citizens, nationals, and legal permanent residents

Membership period is 5 years and costs $85


What Airports and Airlines Have TSA PreCheck?

There are more than 200 U.S. airports and over 70 airlines that participate in the TSA PreCheck program.


How Do I Apply?

You can submit an application online through the TSA website and then schedule an appointment at one of the enrollment centers. At your in-person appointment they will complete the background check and you will be fingerprinted. Two to three weeks after the appointment you will receive your Known Traveler Number.


Each time you make new flight reservations, you add your Known Traveler Number, and the information will appear on your boarding pass so TSA agents know that you’ve been approved for the program.
