The ones the National Personnel Records Center (NPRC) send to you do contain a "Seal" to attest to its (their) authenticity. Here is a link to the NPRC Site: VA DD214 Request
As many ex-military folks do, I have many copies of my DD214, but none have any kind of a seal. On a prior post about 6 months ago, it was noted that one with a "seal" was required by SSA.

I applied for a new DD214 on the web site and eventually received copies of the three DD214s (I had 3 different AD service dates) that have been issued to me and none had any kind of a "seal" or other authentication that I could denote.

My Q now is: does the SSA actually require this "seal" or will that accept a copy w/o a seal? Who here has experience in having SSA approval W/O such a seal?

SSA I believe wants originals or "seal". When I got mine from NPRC the "seal" was a embossed area in the lower right hand corner. Kind of like the old notarized "pliers type" would put on paper. You will not see it unless you are looking for it, or you "feel" the lower right hand area of each 214. They issue you one for each "period" of service (time between "taking of the oath" on reenlistment or appointments for change in status (ie., enlisted to officer/warrant officer status, etc.,). If they come without a "seal" I would just keep the NPRC "package" they send leaving the cover letter attached so the SSA can readily understand that they did come from the NPRC.

Bingo! I located those documents and, just as you indicated OAG, they do include the "seal" after all. I was looking for something more noticeable. Thanks for the information.
