Welcome to Preparing for Life as a Veteran!

We’ll help lesson some uncertainty about submitting that very important first VA disability claim

Our Goal is Your Goal

The goal of our BDD Prep Sessions is to provide significant supplemental information that will help military service personnel properly prepare for their first experience with the VA disability claims process as they transition from service into civilian life

We believe that by empowering transitioning military personnel “now” we help strengthen and further empower the entire Veteran community “for life”

Knowledge is “power!” But Veteran knowledge is “a superpower!”

Learn How to Prepare

Funky VA Math accomplishes its BDD prep session goals through the sharing of knowledge, personal experiences and readily available open-source information.

Together, we’ll explore the many facets of preparing and reviewing your own medical history and records which are key to a successful disability claim.

As well, discuss tons of “tips and touch points” associated with your transition.
