Has your TSA pre-check membership expired or are you trying to renew a TSA membership that is expiring soon? You will need to renew your membership in order to continue having the benefits of TSA pre check. You can renew your TSA membership by clicking the link here on the Transportation Security Administrations Universal Enroll webpage. You can renew after it has expired or up to 6 months prior to expiration.
How much does TSA Pre Check Renewal Cost?
The cost of membership is $85 for 5-years, a fee that is definitely worth the money if you fly multiple times a year. The convenience of not having to take off your shoes, laptops, iPads, belts and jackets is pretty great if you travel often, not to mention the (usually) much shorter lines to get through security.
