What is Telework?
 
Telework is a statewide, alternative loan program allowing Wisconsin residents with disabilities to purchase computers and other equpment needed to work from remote sites away from the office, including at home, on the road, or at a Telework center.  In addition to the purchase of equipment, the loan funds can be used for training to use equipment, extended warranties, the cost of maintenance and repair.
 
Loan amounts will depend on the item purchased and the ability to repay.  The current interest rate is 6.5%. 
 
Bad credit, including bankrutpcy is not a reason to not apply.  The focus is on the ability to make the monthly payment.  Reasons for credit issues are taken into consideration by the review board.
