The Servicemember's Civil Relief Act (SCRA) provides protections for individuals who are entering the service, called to active duty in the military or deployed servicemembers. The SCRA is intended to postpone or suspend certain civil obligations—many of them financial—so service members can devote their full attention to their duties while their family members experience less stress.
For example, the SCRA places a limit on the amount of interest that may be accrued on credit obligations incurred prior to military service or activation
: 6 percent per year during the time of military service. Any amount over and above that 6 percent is permanently forgiven. The SCRA also defines servicemember benefits with regard to issues such as trials, taxes, leases, mortgages and more. For additional information on the SCRA, visit Military.com
