    ... the benefits will go to the deceased as well as to the applicants.

    When we erect the memorial tablets, the benefits will go to the deceased as well as to the applicants.

    Is the second 'to' needed?Thanks.

    Not really, no. Mind you, nor is "as well as" - "and" would do just as well.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
