Transportation Worker Identification Credential (TWIC) ‐‐ Policy on Expiring TWICs
Effective August 30, 2012, TWIC holders who are U.S. citizens or U.S. nationals, and whose TWICs will expire on or before December 31, 2014, have two options to renew their TWIC. They may either replace their expiring TWIC with a 3‐year Extended Expiration Date (EED) TWIC or obtain a standard 5‐year replacement. All TWIC holders should begin the application process at least 30 days before his or her TWIC expires.
The EED TWIC is a one‐time temporary extension option intended to provide convenience and cost‐savings to workers pending the deployment of TWIC readers. TWIC holders who are not U.S. citizens or U.S. nationals are required to enroll for a standard 5‐year replacement upon expiration of their current TWIC.
