This list includes Polish supercentenarians (people who have attained the age of at least 110 years) and foreign supercentenarians, who were born in Poland and whose lifespans have been verified by an international body that specifically deals in longevity research, such as the Gerontology Research Group (GRG). As of July 2015 there has been one verified supercentenarian in Poland. As of 24 May 2022, there are no verified living supercentenarians in Poland. The oldest ever person in Poland, whose age has been successfully verified is Aleksandra Dranka of Harklowa (1903-2014), who achieved age 110 years 208 days.

There have been 11 verified emigrant supercentenarians, who were born in present-day Poland. The oldest ever verified emigrant from the area of present-day Poland is Mrs. Augusta Holtz (1871-1986), who lived in the USA and achieved age 115 years 79 days. The oldest male emigrant from Poland, is Yisrael Kristal of Israel, aged 118 years, 251 days, and recognized as the oldest man alive by Guinness World Records.

Two Polish emigrant supercentenarians were born outside the modern borders of Poland. The older of them is Jerzy Pajączkowski-Dydyński, Polish Colonel, who migrated from Poland in 1939 to the United Kingdom and reached age 111 years 140 days.
