Hello, I am James. I will be helping you today. I do not get a salary here. But just like you, I want to get credit for doing my job. You are the only person who can help me get credit before leaving this site today. So please do not forget to do that by giving me a positive rating with 3 or more stars or any of the smiling faces.

Also, if you want me to be your personal TSA Expert, just write “FOR JAMES" at the beginning of any future, new questions, and I will be happy to help you as your personal Expert.

ANSWER: If you are enrolled in NEXUS, then you were issued a membership card. On the back of that card is a PASS ID. That is your trusted traveler number. You need to put that number in the Known Traveler Number field when you are booking your flight.

Keep in mind that even if you put that number in, you are not always guaranteed expedited screening. To increase security measures, the TSA randomizes when a person with a PASS ID will be eligible for expedited screening through TSA PreCheck.

I hope I have answered your questions. Kindly remember to give me a positive rating before leaving this site today. I do not get a salary here, so your positive rating is the only way I am rewarded for doing my job. If that does not happen, it is as if I never worked, which I am sure you agree would not be an ideal outcome. So please do not forget to give me 3 or more stars, or any smiling faces, in order to help me get credit for doing my job. Thank you!
