TSA Notice Concerning TWIC Card Delay

Today, January 27, 2015, the Transportation Security Adminstration posted the following notice on its website at http://www.tsa.gov/stakeholders/transportation-worker-identification-credential-twic

NEW!  TWIC Processing Delays: Currently, some TWIC applicants are experiencing delays of more than 75 days to receive their TWIC.  We regret any inconvenience or difficulty this may be causing, and are working diligently to reduce the time it takes to process all TWIC applications.  The delay mentioned above applies to applications that involve criminal history records or immigration status that must be verified, although others may also experience a delay.  We strongly encourage all applicants to apply for their TWIC at least 10 to 12 weeks prior to when the card will be required to avoid inconvenience or interruption in access to maritime facilities.
