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. In addition, there are eight pending Polish supercentenarians. As of 26 July 2017, there are no verified living supercentenarians in Poland. The oldest ever person in Poland, whose age has been successfully verified is Mrs. Aleksandra Dranka of Harklowa (1903–2014), who achieved age 110 years, 208 days.

There have been 12 verified emigrant supercentenarians who were born in present-day Poland. Five more are currently pending. 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 emigrants from Poland, are Dr. Alexander Imich of New York (1903–2014), who achieved age 111 years, 124 days and in 2014, and Israel Kristal of Israel (born 1903). Both were recognized as World's Oldest Men by Guinness World Records.

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