MorphoTrust enrolls over one million people in TSA PreCheck program

March 26, 2015 - 

MorphoTrust USA (Safran) announced that over one million people are now enrolled in the Transportation Security Administration PreCheck program for which it is the sole enrollment services provider.

MorphoTrust enrolls about 4,000 people per day in its increasing network of more than 330 TSA PreCheck application centers, including locations at 31 airports and many IdentoGO Centers by MorphoTrust.

TSA PreCheck is an expedited screening program that provides low-risk travelers with a faster and more efficient screening at 133 U.S. airports.

“MorphoTrust is proud to have been a partner of the TSA for more than nine years, and to continue to support the rapid growth of this important program,” said Bob Eckel, CEO of MorphoTrust. “Between our growing network of customer enrollment centers and our popular mobile enrollment programs, we are primed to further expand this program as its popularity continues.”

Americans interested in enrolling in TSA PreCheck can pre-enroll online and then making an appointment at a local center.

At the center, a trained agent will verify the individual’s approved identity documents (a government issued ID, such as a birth certificate or passport) and ask for biographic information before live-scanning applicants’ fingerprints and securely sending the application package to TSA for review.

Once the application vetting process is completed and approved, the agency issues a Known Traveler Number (KTN) via mail.

The $85 applicant processing fee covers five years of access to TSA Precheck, while the entire application process takes a few weeks to complete.

Previously reported, MorphoTrust USA (Safran) opened 28 new off-airport IdentoGO Centers over the last three months, enabling travellers to enroll in TSA Precheck.
