The Servicemembers Civil Relief Act Guide
Military service often compromises the ability of servicemembers to fulfill their financial obligations and to assert many of their legal rights. Fortunately, Congress and state legislatures have long recognized the need for responsive, protective legislation.
The SCRA provides a number of benefits and protections to service personnel. For example, it calls for the reduction of interest on debts to six percent for those debts entered into before entry on active duty.11 Other provisions toll statutes of limitations12 and stay civil proceedings.13 The Act’s stated, broad purpose, found in section 502 of the appendix to Title 50 of the United States Code, gives added meaning to these specific rights.
The purposes of this Act are----
(1) to provide for, strengthen, and expedite the national defense through protection extended by this Act to servicemembers of the United States to enable such persons to devote their entire energy to the defense needs of the Nation; and
(2) to provide for the temporary suspension of judicial and administrative proceedings and transactions that may adversely affect the civil rights of servicemembers during their military service.
