Credit And Our Service Members

Every time we think of our service members struggling, it is in the face of danger, with bullets whizzing overhead and grenades going off. Undoubtedly, stress levels run high in situations such as those. For a great many of our service men and women, there is another form of struggle that has nothing to do with front lines or bullets – its consumer credit.

In today’s global environment, our soldiers and sailors deserve all the protection we as a country can afford them, this includes financial protection. Many service members are finding this protection with the Servicemembers Civil Relief Act of 2003 (SCRA), which was signed into law on December 19, 2003. The SCRA affords this protection to the regular forces, the reserve forces, and the guard forces in Title 10 active duty. In addition, the SCRA also covers members of the Coast Guard, Public Health Service, and members of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, and in some cases extends to dependents of the service member. Some of the more noteworthy elements are protection from high interest. If the service member enters active duty with debt, such as credit card debt, the service member can petition to have their interest reduced to a mere 6%. This can amount to fairly significant savings on the part of the service member, especially if they qualify for more than one account. This can be beneficial to any joint account holder as well if listed on the account with the service member.

Another benefit of the SCRA is that it will allow for the termination of both, auto and real estate leases. Of course, there are a few requirements, such as a moving or changing duty station, but all-in-all should be easy to meet. In addition, home foreclosures and auto contracts (purchases) are another area protected under the act. It states that, if because of military service you breech your contract, lenders must have a court order to exercise a foreclosure or repossession. In some cases, the member can even request a stay of the proceedings.

Another nice perk is the ability to safeguard your status as a service member to the credit bureaus. In some cases, lenders have denied the service member credit based on the credit reports identifying the member as being in the military. Judgments are another area the SCRA affords you protection. If the member has a default judgment against them, a request can be submitted to have the court re-open the case and set-aside the judgment.

As you can see, there are many possible ways that the SCRA can help our fighting men and women. So, if the member is between day one of active service and (up to) six months after release, then it may benefit them to look into the Servicemembers Civil Relief Act of 2003. There may be valuable information that could provide one less thing to worry about.
