This is a list of Hungarian supercentenarians (people from Hungary who have attained the age of at least 110 years). In the modern era of the country (since World War II), at least 13 people have reached this age, the first one being Józsefné Szűcs in 2000 (not counting Boldizsárné Sztrecho, who was probably 10 years younger than claimed). The oldest known person to ever live in Hungary is Veronika Zsilinszki, who died aged 113 years, 75 days in 2021. The oldest known man ever is Rezső Gallai, who died aged 110 years, 239 days in 2014. The oldest Hungarian emigrant ever is Elizabeth Stefan, who died in the United States aged 112 years, 332 days in 2008. The oldest male emigrant ever is Zoltan Sarosy, who died in Canada aged 110 years, 300 days in 2017.

All people listed in this article were born in the Hungarian part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire (except for Antal Ribnikár, who was born in Vienna).

Note: every married woman's name is constructed of her husband's full name with a "-né" suffix. Their given names are not shown in this case (unmarried women's given names are shown).
