TSA Check

The process for participating in the Transportation Security Administration’s PreCheck program will change, Dec. 20.

PreCheck is a voluntary, expedited security screening process that allows participants to keep on their shoes, belt and light jacket and to leave laptops and 3-1-1 compliant liquids in their carry-on bags.

Under the new process, service members (including Reservists, National Guardsmen and members of the Coast Guard) will use their Department of Defense identification number as the “Known Traveler Number” when making official travel or leisure airline reservations. They will use the dedicated TSA PreCheck security lanes at any of the 100 airports that offer the program.

Members do not have to be in uniform or on official travel to participate in the program.

To participate, service members must enter their DOD ID number (found on the back of their Common Access Card) as the “Known Traveler Number” when making reservations through Defense Travel Management (DTS), through a commercial travel office or when booking leisure travel through the airline or travel websites.

When using DTS or making a reservation through a commercial travel office, service members should enter their DOD ID number in the “Known Traveler Number” field when prompted to verify their secure flight information (name, date of birth, gender).

To ensure the DOD ID number is included in new official travel reservations, service members should save their DOD ID number in the “Known Traveler Number” field of their DTS profile.
