Attention TSA Pre✓® members! Have you been enjoying expedited security screening since 2013? Don’t wait! ACT NOW before your known traveler number (KTN) expires. That’s right, your TSA Pre✓® eligibility expires after five years. So if you want to keep enjoying your member benefits, renew now before your membership lapses. The renewal fee is $85. That’s only $17 a year!  RENEW NOW!

More than 45,000 KTNs will expire between December 2018 and February 2019, with more KTNs expiring every month throughout 2019.

But you don’t have to wait! TSA Pre✓® membership may be renewed up to six months before the expiration date of your KTN, and you will retain your current KTN as long as you renew up to one year after expiration.

For most members, renewal is easy and may be completed online. However, some members will have to renew in person to provide updated data or new fingerprints. You’ll receive an automated on-screen notification when filling out the application online if you need to renew in person. 

What’s that? You don’t have TSA Pre✓® and you’re wondering if it’s for you? Thanks to TSA Pre✓®, in September 2018, 94% of TSA Pre✓® passengers waited less than five minutes in the security line. More than 200 airports and 54 airlines provide TSA Pre✓® to the over 7 million travelers who have enrolled in the program.

In addition to shorter wait times, here are the advantages:
