Sometimes referred to as the "Military Clause", the SCRA strengthens and updates earlier statutes that had provided certain civil protection for military servicemembers.   

Servicemembers Civil Relief Act (SCRA), enacted into law December 19, 2003, replaced the Soldiers and Sailors Civil Relief Act (SSCRA) of 1940. 

The SCRA was passed to help ease the economic and legal burdens on military servicemembers inducted, called to active duty or deployed to new duty stations. 

The intention of the SCRA is to postpone or suspend certain civil obligations to allow servicemembers to give full attention to duty and ease the stress on the servicemember's family while the servicemember is deployed.  Reservists and members of the National Guard in active federal service are also protected under the SCRA. 

SCRA protections include certain provisions for:

    Termination of pre-service lease agreements
    Evictions from leased housing
    6% Interest Rate
    Court Proceedings
    Installment Contracts
    Enforcement of Obligations, Liabilities, Taxes
