A list of states that offer the best protections against elder abuse has Michigan in the Top Five.

The list from WalletHub puts Michigan 4th, behind Rhode Island, Wisconsin, and Massachusetts, which topped the list. New Jersey finished last.

Indiana was in the middle of the pack at 25. The share of adults aged 65 and older is expected to be 1 in 5 by the year 2030, according to the study, which also suggests that as many as 13 of every 14 elder abuse cases go unreported.

The data looked at a state’s share of abuse cases, gross neglect, complaints of exploitation, and laws in place to protect financial abuses.
