What Is The Servicemembers Civil Relief Act (Scra)?

The SCRA was created in 2003 completely replaced the Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Civil Relief Act (SSCRA) of 1940.  The SCRA (and previously the SCCRA) protects those persons who serve on active military duty for the nation’s defense, from adverse consequences to their legal rights that may result because of such service, so that such persons may devote their full attention and all their energies to the nation’s defense.  The SCRA strengthens the protections originally granted by the SSCRA, extends certain protection for dependents of the member on active duty, and creates new protections for members.  The SCRA provides protection for members in civil court and administrative actions.  It also provides protections for issues involving taxation, house/apartment leases, car leases, interest rates and insurance.
