Further, the VMA has been asked to highlight the following information:


1. Due to the large number of transportation workers requesting EED TWICs, TSA requests that applicants order an EED TWIC no sooner than 4 months prior to their current TWIC expiration date. If their card expires within 4 months and you would like to order an EED TWIC, please call the TWIC Help Desk at 1-866-DHS-TWIC (1-866-347-8942).

2. Companies or entities interested in receiving TWIC mobile enrollment and bulk payment options, should contact Stephen Foster, Lockheed Martin TWIC Operations Manager, at (703)663-5105 or Stephen.l.foster@lmco.comto inquire about these arrangements.
