The Servicemembers Civil Relief Act (50 USC App. 501) is Federal law.
It requires verification of an individual’s active military status before proceeding with court judgments, collections, repossession, and foreclosure.

The Act covers default judgments, rental agreements, security deposits, eviction, credit card interest rates, mortgage interest rates, mortgage foreclosure, automobile leases, life and health insurance.

If you need verification that someone is or is not in the military, then register today. We can supply a military affidavit delivered the following day.

Frequently, evidence that such a verification or search has been performed must be presented in court, and our website offers a method of performing a military service verification that is usually much more efficient and less costly than writing directly to the service component agencies.

Going that latter route can mean waiting months to get results, and some branches of the armed forces have now indicated they no longer have the ability to process active military duty requests due to a lack of resources. Experienced users find the SCRACVS to be far superior to the DMDC site. A major difference is that SCRACVS offers affidavits and excellent chat and support.  See a full comparison here.

Conducting a DMDC Military Search

If you’re interested in using our site for verifying DMDC records, start by completing our simple military search registration form. We do not charge a fee to register, and there is no need to make a payment until you perform a military status search through our encrypted portal.

Providing an individual’s Social Security Number is the quickest way to get results, but in most cases, you may be able to conduct your SCRA search with alternative personal data such as a date of birth, names of an individual’s relatives, addresses, telephone numbers, or even the names of businesses the individual has been associated with in the past. Our database also covers people who have recently retired from the military.


You can pay for each military search through PayPal or with a Credit Card. You’ll be able to track each stage of your process and receive relevant confirmation e-mails for your records.
