The moniker "The VA Math Guy" was bestowed the future Founder of Funky VA Math during collaborative efforts with fellow Veterans to unravel their VA Disability challenges. Their encouragement led him to contemplate formal medical advising and consulting, culminating in the establishment of Funky VA Math!
Funky VA Math LLC currently extends its support to Veterans through small-group engagements at the organizational level. Veterans in search of individual assistance for their VA Claims (of any nature) are enthusiastically urged to reach out to local Veteran Service Organizations (VSOs) or VA Accredited Agents and/or Attorneys, who possess extensive training and a strong eagerness to aid.
For those curious, the term "funky" VA Math is informally used by certain Veterans to characterize the formula employed by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) for calculating Combined Disability Ratings.
Tom Hurley, Owner/CEO of Funky VA Math LLC, honorably retired from the U.S. Army as a medic after more than 20 years of continuous Active-Duty Service.
He proceeded to undertake a subsequent federal role, amassing over 18 years in Civil Service as a Medical Operations Specialist with the United States Army Medical Command (USAMEDCOM) at Joint Base San Antonio, Texas, as well as the Office of The Army Surgeon General (TSG).
This accumulates to a remarkable total of more than 38 years of combined Active Federal Service and Military Medicine involvement that Tom contributes to Funky VA Math.
He currently resides in New Braunfels, Texas, finding great enthusiasm in all things related to "VA Math."
We are a private organization primarily dedicated to advising and educating Veterans on the optimal interpretation of the 38 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR38). This equips them to confidently pursue the best possible VA Disability Rating.
We achieve this by enhancing Veterans' comprehension of the objective and subjective requisites outlined in 38CFR. This includes instructing them on how to effectively review service and private medical records, uncovering potential concealed or supportive details that could lead to heightened "existing" disability ratings.
