Status of TWIC Enrollment Services During Shutdown
I am getting a lot of questions from my fellow FSOs about the status of TWIC enrollment centers during the shutdown. Here's the word from TSA:
"This message is a notice to stakeholders about the lapse in Federal funding. The Transportation Security Administration’s (TSA) TWIC® enrollment services are still open and operating and in-person appointments are available.* If you require assistance with enrollment services, please call 855-DHS-UES1 (855-347-8371) between 8:00am - 10:00pm Eastern, Mon. - Fri.
Additionally, the issuance/delivery of the TWIC® card is not impacted. With the exception to applicants subject to redress, eligible TWIC® applicants should expect to receive a TWIC® card in approximately 4 to 14 days, pending delivery times.
For additional information on the TSCC or TWIC®, please contact: TWIC.email@example.com."
