The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has posted the following information about Transportation Worker Identification Credentials (TWIC). For more information, visit the TSA’s TWIC website by clicking HERE
1. TWIC “OneVisit”—Now Available Everywhere: TWIC cards can now be mailed directly to your home, or other location, instead of returning to an enrollment center to pick up your card. This applies to new or renewed enrollment cards, Extended Expiration Date (EED) TWICs (see item 8 below), or replacements for lost, stolen, or damaged cards. If you choose to receive your card by mail you will only be required to make one visit to an enrollment center to complete the enrollment process. When you receive your card it will be activated and ready to use. A mailer with the card’s preset Personal Identification Number (PIN) will be sent to you separately. You may also choose to pick up your card at an enrollment center. If you pick up your card at an enrollment center you can select your PIN. If you receive your card by mail and want to change your preset PIN you can visit any enrollment center to have it set to your selected PIN at no cost.
8. Extended Expiration Date TWICs: If you are a worker holding a TWIC that expires on or before December 31, 2014 and you are a U.S. citizen or U.S. national you will be able to replace your expiring TWIC with a 3-year Extended Expiration Date (EED) TWIC. To order an EED TWIC or a card replacement, you may contact the UES Call Center at 1-855-DHS-UES1 (1-855-347-8371) Monday through Friday from 8 AM - 10 PM Eastern. Alternatively, click here to order your EED TWIC or card replacement online.
