IdentoGO expands identity services through H&R Block partnership

September 3, 2015 - 

IdentoGO, an identity service operated by MorphoTrust USA, announced it has partnered with H&R Block to co-market a range of identity services, including enrollment in the TSA Precheck application program.

Under the terms of the agreement, H&R Block will market and deliver IdentoGO services to customers throughout 27 states.

These marketing efforts will help to expand the number of application centers available for TSA Precheck as well as other state and local programs.

“With store-front locations within a five-mile radius of most Americans living in the United States, H&R Block is a well-known and widely respected partner, ideal for IdentoGO services,” said Charles Carroll, senior vice president for identity services at IdentoGO. “This new relationship will allow us to expand access to identity services, like TSA Precheck, by making it even more convenient to apply.”

IdentoGO currently provide enrollment services for TSA Precheck through its network of more than 330 application centers.

By partnering with H&R Block, IdentoGO will be able to initially expand TSA Precheck application centers by more than 20 percent.

Many of these H&R Block branches will also support other programs requiring fingerprinting as part of a criminal background check, which is already offered at IdentoGO centers.

TSA Precheck is an expedited security screening program that provides travelers departing from within the United States with improved security and a more seamless air travel experience at more than 150 U.S. airports.

The more than one million TSA Precheck-enrolled travelers are not required to remove their shoes, laptops, liquids, belts or light jackets.

Previously reported, the Department of Public Safety announced it would soon expand the network of its Fingerprint Applicant Services of Texas (FAST) with 55 additional IndetoGO enrollment Centers, specifically in rural areas.
