SCRA

Understand your rights and benefits.

Since 1940, active duty and deployed military have been protected by legislation like The Servicemembers Civil Relief Act (SCRA).

The SCRA is intended to postpone, suspend, or alleviate certain civil and financial obligations so servicemembers can devote their full attention to their duties. It also helps reduce the amount of stress felt by both those in service and their family members.

The SCRA will:

  • Limit the amount of interest that may be collected on debts, incurred prior to entering military service, to a maximum of 6 percent per year, during your service period.
  • Forgive permanently any amount of interest over and above that 6 percent during active duty for most loans and for an additional year after termination of active duty for mortgage loans.
  • Stop excess interest from accruing on credit obligations while you are on active duty. The monthly payment must be reduced by the amount of interest saved during the covered period.
