    Does every single piece of material, Marriage Certificate, Bank Statement etc. have to be "certified copy"? Exactly what is meant by "certified"? Is Notarized not acceptable?, or is it the same thing? I'm about to send off the basic application for my 80 year old father and I need to know if I have it all wrong with mere photocopies, except for his DD214, it's taken entirely too long for this process as it is, and sending "wrong" material to the incompetents at VA to kick back makes me furious at the thought of more stonewalling.

    Certified copy of the discharge papers. You can get that done at the bank where they need to mark it as a "true and accurate" copy.

    The rest you are fine with. Just make sure to mail Return Receipt and to the proper Pension Center as listed here and on the site for his state.

    Good luck with the process.
