TSA Pre-Check

There is a TSA Pre-Check at Chicago Rockford International Airport.  Pre-Check allows travelers in the program to leave on their shoes, light outwear and belt, keep their laptop in its case and their 3-1-1 compliant liquids/gels bag in a carry-on, in select checkpoint screening lanes. The TSA Pre-Check lane will be available during select times based on projected airline passenger volume.

To be eligible for this expedited screening program, individuals need to apply.  The application program requires a background check, fingerprints, and an application fee of $85 for a five-year membership.  Once approved, travelers will receive a Known Traveler Number (KTN) and will have the opportunity to utilize Pre-Check lanes at security checkpoints at more than 180 participating airports on 37 airlines.

If you are looking to apply in person for TSA Pre-Check eligibility, the closest location is:

Stewart Square
308 W. State Street, Suite 175
Rockford, IL 61101

Hours: Monday to Friday 8:45am to 12:00pm

How to apply:

  1. Make an appointment online and pre-apply here.  It typically takes less than 10 minutes to pre-apply.

As always, TSA continues to incorporate random and unpredictable security measures throughout the airport and no individual will be guaranteed expedited screening.
