Hi Wish, I would think a certified copy would be fine. I assume you mean one that has been notarized, with the stamp impression. How many of us have our original birth certificates any way. It is strange that they would want to have your original. If you got a certified copy from your state's Dept of Records they should accept that. Most people never send an original document - it is too risky because what if they don't return it. So I think you should be OK. A copy is going to look the same as the original- what's the difference. Good luck and let us know what happens.
If a certified copy with the state seal on it is good enough for Social Security then it will be fine for insurance. What if your original was destroyed.............
You will be fine sweetie.
