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?
