Something I didn't realize about the TWIC card
It functions the same as preCheck in airports.

Straight from the TSA

I know it's old information for a lot of people, but I just found this out so just putting it out for those who may have missed that info.

"Qualifying Transportation Worker
Identification Credential (TWIC®)
holders are now eligible for TSA
PreCheckTM at no cost and no extra
enrollment. The Transportation Security
Administration (TSA) has identified
efficiencies across vetting programs,
eliminating redundancies, and reducing
the administrative and cost burdens to
applicants for vetting and credentialing.
The TWIC® Program is a regulated
vetting program that requires TSA to
conduct a Security Threat Assessment
(STA) to determine if an individual
requiring specific transportation-related
access poses a threat to national or
transportation security. Given the
similarity to the threat assessment
performed on TSA PreCheck members,
many TWIC® applicants meet the
criteria for the TSA PreCheck
Application Program and may be
eligible for expedited security screening.
In addition to having a valid STA, the
credential holder must meet citizenship
and residency requirements, and the
credential must have been approved
without a waiver. TWIC® cardholders
must use an active TWIC® Credential
Identification Number (CIN) that has not
been canceled. The CIN is printed on
the back lower left-hand corner of the
TWIC® card."

The last time I flew the TSA wouldn’t even take my TWIC as a form of ID. I told the guy how ridiculous it was and he agreed.

TWIC is a TSA program. How can something they administer not be a form of ID? I had to use it to get into every facility that was part of the program.

To be a shit, I tried to use my passport card and my TWIC to vote. WWI vet working the polls was all sorts of confused.

I had the same experience. Only the fat lady checking IDs didn’t know what it was.

Also you can’t use a TWIC card as an ID when buying a gun.

No, you need to enter your TWIC credential identification number (CIN) in the known traveler number (KTN) field when you book your airline reservation. This will give you a TSA precheck marker on your boarding pass.

They usually won't let you in the line if they don't see that mark on your boarding pass.
