TSA Security Precheck
Updated: Oct 5, 2020
Do you frequently fly? Do the long security lines annoy you? Why not spend a little money and save some time. For $85 you can get TSA Precheck that is valid for five years.
Benefits of being TSA Precheck include the following at most airports :
Expedited security lines – wait times of five minutes or less on average
Do not have to remove belt or shoes at security
Do not have to remove laptop or 3oz liquids from your carryon at security
Getting TSA Precheck is as simple as visiting tsa.gov/precheck to complete the online application then a ten-minute appointment that includes a background check and being fingerprinted.
Within several weeks of approval you will receive a Known Traveler Number (KTN). Add that number to all of your airline loyalty accounts or to the airline when you purchase a ticket. Then be ready to breeze through security.
