As it turns out, each year, TSA has to report to congress two things at the end of each year: how much money was collected at each individual airport and exactly what the money will be used for.

According to a report shown on this original article, unclaimed pocket change ranged from just under $300 at Tucson International Airport, to over $19,000 at Boston's Logan International Airport, to a whopping $55,000 at Los Angeles International Airport.

In total, the collected amounted to $765,759.15. What will they be using it for? Expanding the TSA PreCheck program.
