This is intended to be a list of every known man in the United States who is alive at the age of 106 or older. Entries must have at least a 106th birthday confirmation to be included in this list. There are likely many men currently undiscovered, so the rankings may be slightly lower in reality.

Currently, the oldest living man in the USA is Eugene Baltes (born 29 October 1914) aged 109 years, 257 days of Illinois. His age is validated by the Gerontology Research Group (GRG).
