Default SCRA Process
The Default SCRA Process makes handling SCRA Requests a smooth and streamlined process. The Servicemember Civil Relief Act is law designed to ease financial burdens of servicemembers during times of active military service. This article will not detail all the clauses of the SCRA act but will explain how to utilize the process wizard in LoanPro.
Starting the Process
In the event that a customer requests SCRA, the agent managing the customer's account can enter the specific loan and navigate to the 'Wizards' tab. This page shows all the process wizards available for use on the account. Some of the process wizards have certain requirements in regards to the loan that must be met in order to start the process wizard.
For 'SCRA Wizard - A', the requirements to start the wizard process are that the loan must be in an 'Open' status and the payoff of the loan account must be greater than $0.00. If the loan account meets these conditions, the agent can open and begin the process.
