Military Bankruptcy

There are currently over 1.4 million men and women serving in the active component of the United States Military and over 2 million in the Reserves and National Guard. United States Military personnel are currently deployed to numerous locations throughout the world most notably Iraq and Afghanistan.

The United States Military consists of four primary active branches: the Army, Navy, Marine Corps, and the Air Force. The Coast Guard is often considered a fifth branch of the military and is operationally assigned to the Navy during wartime. The reserve component consists of the Army Reserve, Navy Reserve, Marine Corps Reserves, Air Force Reserves, and the National Guard.

There are several laws which protect military members facing bankruptcy. Most prominently is the Service members Civil Relief Act (SCRA) which protects active duty Military members and reservists called to active duty from default judgments, eviction, and any proceeding to collect a judgment. Secondly, a disabled veteran filing for bankruptcy whose debts were incurred primarily during active military duty or homeland defense service is exempt from the means test.
