Are you a banker, a lender or another type of merchant who does business with service members? If so, we have some information you need.
While military members are an important segment of your client base, you must keep in mind that they are entitled to certain rights and protections that other clients do not get.
The Servicemembers Civil Relief Act is a United States federal law that provides for some of these protections for service members. The SCRA calls for, among other things, a lower interest rate for active-duty service members. They are entitled to this protection because as soldiers, they often don’t make a lot of money, and steep interest rates exacerbate the problem. Further, the intent of the law is to relieve active-duty service members from excessive fees and worries while they are in the military serving our country.
The SCRA also stipulates that certain procedures be followed for evictions and repossessions. If, as a person who does business with members of the military, you fail to follow these rules and procedures, it can cost you a lot of money in the form of fines and penalties. Thus, it is critical to check military status before proceeding with any actions against a soldier or service member.
You may wonder how to find out if someone is a service member. You may attempt to get this information on your own by Googling the names of US army soldiers, military members or military personnel. And although this is a way you can get results, the information you find may not be up to date.
Additionally, while it is possible to check government sources on your own to find out if someone is in the Army or another branch of the military, you must have their Social Security number to be able to conduct such a search. And even then, it can be difficult and time-consuming to get accurate information from the U.S. government.
