The Elder Index was developed by the Gerontology Institute at the University of Massachusetts Boston. Special thanks is offered to the researchers, policy area experts, initiative advisory board members, and state partners throughout the country that shared their insights about older people’s financial needs and informed development of the Elder Index.

With deep appreciation, we thank our current partners: The Retirement Research Foundation; The National Council On Aging; The Henry and Marilyn Taub Foundation; The Silver Century Foundation; and Gary and Mary West Foundation.
