You’ve arrived at the airport and realize… OH MY GOSH I DON’T HAVE MY ID!!!!! Don’t fret my pet.
Most people are under the idea that if you don’t have a government issued ID you won’t be allowed on a plane. Not only is that incorrect, but you don’t even need a single piece of identification. Let’s unpack this.
If you’ve left your government issued ID at home, or you just don’t have any…you can get through security via these pieces:
Something must have the following
- Phone Number
- Social Security
- Date of birth
That could be via a combo of the following:
- Library Card
- Bank Card
- Utility Bill
- Student ID
- insurance card
- Birth Certificate
Our favorite credit card that gives a TSA PRE and Global Entry credit:
But what if you don’t have any form of ID?
You’re still good to go as long as you can fill out a form that verifies who you say you are. I personally haven’t done this, but it’s very cleared stipulated on the website and I’ve known people to have anecdotally tried it, and it works. Think of the questions a bank would ask you over the phone…
So there you have it…you don’t need an ID to pass through airport security.
