Washington, D.C. – Congresswoman Elise Stefanik (R-NY) and Congressman Andy Kim (D-NJ) introduced the Servicemember Credit Monitoring Enhancement Act, bipartisan legislation to ensure every servicemember has access to credit monitoring services.
Currently, only active duty military and National Guard and Reserve in active duty status are eligible for free credit monitoring services. This legislation would make all servicemembers, including traditional National Guardsmen and Reservists eligible for this credit monitoring service.
“Our servicemembers have all taken an oath to protect our nation, and it is critical we make sure they are protected,” said Congresswoman Elise Stefanik. “I am proud to introduce this bipartisan legislation to extend these credit monitoring services to all our men and women in uniform. As they answer the call to duty, they deserve to do so with the peace of mind that their finances will be securely monitored.”
“Our National Guard and Reserve servicemembers make enormous sacrifices to keep us safe and need to be ready to be called into active duty at a moment’s notice. Because they’re always on call, we need to make sure they don’t have to worry about their credit or overthink their finances,” said Congressman Andy Kim. “Our bipartisan bill would make sure members of the Guard and Reserve have access to the same financial resources and information that active duty military use. National Guard and Reserve servicemembers deserve to have peace of mind when it comes to their financial security, and I encourage my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to support our servicemembers by passing this meaningful legislation.”
Stefanik and Kim were joined by Representatives Trent Kelly (R-MS), Ro Khanna (D-CA), and Mike Ezell (R-MS) in introducing this legislation.
