    If a surviving spouse is approved and currently receiving death pension at one tier, must the veterans death certificate be resubmitted when applying for the same pension at a higher tier?

    Thanks for all the great help provided here.

    If you are receiving the basic pension and are now applying for the Aid & Attendance portion, it shouldn't be needed, but to avoid any confusion from the VA I always send another copy to them. Additionally, it does not need to be an original a photocopy works fine.

    Would the photocopy need to be a certified copy? We submitted a certified copy with the original application.

    No it does not have to be. It's preferable but not 100% needed.
