IWD Process Overview

Applicants will be able to request non-competitive consideration and be placed on a separate referral list for employment. The application must include documentation about the candidate’s disability from a licensed medical professional, a licensed vocational rehabilitation specialist, any federal, state or District of Columbia agency or a U.S. territory that issues or provides disability benefits. 


Because Security occupations include strict physical and medical requirements, IWD will often find the greatest opportunities at TSA in management, administrative and professional positions. These may include positions in the following:

  • Acquisition
  • Civil Rights and Liberties
  • Chief Counsel
  • Finance and Administration
  • Global Strategies
  • Human Capital
  • Information Technology

  • Security Capabilities
  • Security Policy and Industry Engagement
  • Security Operations
  • Strategic Communications and Public Affairs
  • Training and Development

*All applicants who apply for vacancies with specific physical qualification requirements, such as Transportation Security Officer and Federal Air Marshal positions, must meet the physical qualification requirements as outlined in the job opportunity announcements.
