This article is about validated specific supercentenarian claims by modern standards. For modern, or complete, unvalidated supercentenarian claims, see Longevity claims. For historical, incomplete unvalidated supercentenarian claims, see Longevity myths.

This is a list of the world's verified oldest people, verified to the standards of an international body widely recognized for specific expertise in longevity research, such as the Gerontology Research Group or Guinness World Records. The GRG verification procedure for supercentenarians requires at least three documents, submitted in a standard process and validated in reliable fashion. Entries are ranked in descending order by individual ages in years and days, rather than ages in total days; (the calendar year used is the time between one date and the subsequent date in a following year regardless of year lengths).

The oldest verified person ever was French woman Jeanne Calment, who died at the age of 122 years, 164 days. For other validated supercentenarian cases listed below, the GRG list of validated supercentenarian cases can be used.[1] There are ten verified living supercentenarians on this list, the oldest of whom is Japanese woman Misao Okawa, aged 117 years, 1 day.
