continue reading » The Servicemembers Civil Relief Act (SCRA) is designed to protect individuals on full-time active military duty who have been materially affected by their service. A recent CompBlog back-to-basics post examines one significant aspect of the SCRA: the 6% interest rate limit.The SCRA limits interest rates on debts incurred prior to active duty at 6% for the duration of the servicemember’s period of military service. Interest includes service charges, renewal fees, or any other charges (except bona fide insurance) with respect to an obligation or liability.The limit does not apply to debt incurred during or after active duty service, so it does not apply to new advances under an existing credit card or home equity line of credit program.This is true even if the open-end plans were established prior to active duty.In order to receive reduced rates, the servicemember must provide a credit union with a written notice and a copy of the military orders calling the servicemember to active duty, as well as any orders further extending military service, within 180 days of release from military service. 9SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr
Topics : The city of Berlin has however declared a one-off public holiday to remember the day 75 years ago when the war that claimed over 50 million lives came to an end in Europe.The move has prompted some to call for the date to be made a permanent public holiday, touching off a heated debate in Germany. Europe marks 75 years since the end of World War II in a somber mood Friday as the coronavirus pandemic forces the cancellation of elaborate ceremonies even as Berlin declares an exceptional holiday for the first time.Chancellor Angela Merkel will join President Frank-Walter Steinmeier in laying wreaths at Neue Wache — Germany’s main memorial to the victims of war and dictatorship, followed by a speech by the president.Unlike elsewhere on the continent, where May 8 is celebrated annually as Victory in Europe Day, the anniversary of Nazi Germany’s unconditional surrender to the Allies has always been just another work day in Europe’s biggest economy. Firmly slapping down the idea of giving prominence to the anniversary, the leader of the far-right AfD, Alexander Gauland, argued that the date was too “ambivalent”. “It was a day of complete defeat, a day of the loss of huge parts of Germany and the loss of the possibility to shape its future,” Gauland told the RND newspaper group.Gauland, who has described the Nazi period as a mere “speck of bird poo” in Germany’s otherwise glorious past, immediately drew fire.Josef Schuster, president of the Central Council of Jews, said Gauland’s view of May 8 was typical of “neo-Nazis”.”The intention is to portray the Germans primarily as victims. I find this distortion of history and relativisation of Nazi crimes irresponsible,” Schuster told the daily Neue Osnabruecker Zeitung.President Steinmeier had originally called a state ceremony to mark May 8 — the first since 1995 — but the event before the Reichstag building has had to be scaled down to prevent transmission of the coronavirus. Too risky Likewise, large-scale parades across Europe have been scrapped, drastically downsized or moved online, as the continent grapples with its biggest crisis since World War II — this time an invisible enemy that has sickened more than 3.7 million worldwide.With veterans already at an advanced age, organizers of marches had deemed it too risky for them to attend events even in countries which have begun to ease lockdown measures.Russia had originally planned a huge military display on its May 9 Victory Day, with world leaders including France’s President Emmanuel Macron on the guest list.But now only a flypast will take place over the Red Square, as the country becomes Europe’s new hotspot of coronavirus infections.President Vladimir Putin will lay flowers at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier memorial, before making a TV address which will not only touch on the war, but is also expected to chart out the country’s next steps on battling the virus.Elsewhere, COVID-19 continues to make its presence felt.In the Czech Republic, where a lockdown has been completely lifted, politicians will be arriving at 10-minute intervals to lay wreaths on Prague’s Vitkov Hill, to minimize contact.Ceremonies across France have been drastically scaled down, although Macron will still be attending an event on the Champs-Elysees.In Britain, street parades by veterans have been cancelled.Queen Elizabeth II will make a televised address to the nation at 9:00 pm (2000 GMT), the same time that her father, king George VI, gave a radio address marking VE day in 1945.Her son and heir, Prince Charles, will also read an extract from the king’s diary from the day, which covers the royal family’s appearances on the balcony of Buckingham Palace as massive crowds celebrated in the streets below.That evening, the young queen — then known as Princess Elizabeth — and her sister Margaret were given permission to leave the palace and join the festivities. ‘Day of complete defeat’
