TSA: Some TWICs Missing Fingerprint Files (6/20)


Back to News

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is reporting that a number of Transportation Worker Identification Credential (TWIC) cards recently were produced without “fingerprint template files.” According to the agency, the affected cards have expiration dates from May 22, 2019 through May 30, 2019. Not all cards within this expiration date range are affected; those without the fingerprint template files “are otherwise functional with readers and are valid.”


No-cost replacement cards are available to individuals who received these cards, according to the TSA.

The latter document is 192 pages and only contains individual “agency series numbers” or ASNs, which are printed on the backs of the cards, as well as expiration dates. It doesn’t list names.
