Did you know?

The VA Math Guy (Tom) received his nickname while working with fellow Veterans to solve their VA Disability issues. He is also warmly referred to as “The Ratings Equalizer” and at times, “The Ratings Whisperer“.

It was at the strong urging of other Veterans he’d assisted over many years, that he consider formal Medical Consulting. Hence, the establishment of Funky VA Math!

For the curious, “funkyVA Math is a term loosely used by some Veterans to describe the seemingly bizarre formula which the Department of Veteran Affairs (VA) uses to calculate Combined Disability Ratings.

Tom Hurley, Owner/CEO of Funky VA Math LLC retired from the U.S. Army as a medic with over 20 years continuous Active Duty service. He then completed a second Federal retirement with over (18) years Civil Service as a Medical Operations Specialist, United States Medical Command (USAMEDCOM) at Joint Base San Antonio, Texas and Office of The Army Surgeon General (TSG). Combined, he brings over (38) years of military medicine to the fight!

He currently resides in New Braunfels, Texas and enjoys anything “VA Math”.
