Ninth District SCRA


SERVICEMEMBERS CIVIL RELIEF ACT

 (New Name, New Law, New Protections)

An old law recently got a new name. Effective December 19, 2003, the Soldiers and Sailors Civil Relief Act was revised and renamed. The new law is now the "Servicemembers Civil Relief Act" or SCRA for short. Anything you see entitled "Soldiers and Sailors Civil Relief Act" or "SSCRA" should be reviewed for accuracy because the new law includes some big changes.

The SCRA offers protections to MILITARY personnel in recognition of the special demands placed upon those serving on active duty. Here's a quick summary of the new provisions (with comparisons to the old law in parentheses).
