This is intended to be a list of every man in Belgium who has reached the age of 106 or older. The oldest living man in Belgium is Limburg's Jaak Broekx (born 6 August 1914), who is currently 107 years, 173 days old.

The oldest man ever to die in Belgium is Jan Goossenaerts of Antwerp, who died on 21 March 2012 at the age of 111 years, 143 days. He has held this record since 18 January 2011, when he surpassed Louis Marion's record of 110 years, 79 days. However, Goossenaerts is not the oldest man ever born in Belgium, as that record is held by Jan Machiel Reyskens, who died in the Netherlands in 1990 aged 111 years, 241 days.
