How do I determine my known traveler number

My Global Entry Card has two long numbers. Under PASSID is 984xxxxxx SCxxx then on the right side of the card is 103xxxxxx.

Is my known traveler number the 984 number or the 103 number?

From the FAQ in the old GOES website (now replaced by the TTP site):
The membership number is exactly nine digits. It is labeled as PASSID on the back of the Global Entry, NEXUS, SENTRI, U.S. / Mexico FAST, U.S. / Canada FAST card or Program Membership on the interview invitation letter or denial letter.
Like the other members who posted earlier, mine also starts with 9.

The PASSID is tied to the individual and their status in the program. If you upgrade from Global Entry to NEXUS for instance, your KTN remains the same - even though you get a new document (a NEXUS Card) upon acceptance into Global Entry.

I think the SC is a security code like the three digits on the back of a credit card. It's been a while since I had to activate a new card but I think that was one of the fields asked for.

There are some other entries on the card, but the 10####### is almost certainly a document number. Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative standardizes the fields in the machine readable zone.

On my US Passport card it's
IPUSAC######## (where the #s match the "passport card no" listed on the front of the document that starts with a C and then is a series of digits).

On my Enhanced Drivers License it's
IDUSA########## (where the #s is a series of numbers and letters that the NYS DMV website explicitly says is the document number, and hasn't been listed on the front since 2014).

On my Nexus card it's
INUSA10######### (where the #s is the 10# listed on the right side of the card in larger print).

So I'm very sure that given these are all WHTI documents and the fact that the position in the MRZ is known to be the document number (that would change if a new document was issued due to changes in circumstance or loss/destruction of prior document) bears out that the 10# is the document number on NEXUS and GE cards.
