How much does the average TSA agent make yearly?

The average salary for TSA agent jobs is $57,000 but may vary greatly based on experience, etc.

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) was formed in the wake of 9/11 to make the security of the nation’s transportation systems stronger while ensuring the freedom of movement for people and commerce. TSA currently employs a risk-based strategy to secure U.S. transportation systems, and works carefully with stakeholders in aviation, rail, transit, highway, and pipeline sectors, as well as the partners in the law enforcement and intelligence groups.

They strive to set a standard of excellence in transportation security through its people, processes, technologies and use of intelligence to drive operations.
