This is a list of Taiwanese claims to supercentenarian status. As of yet, none of these have been validated - they are all unvalidated. Please do not add claims over 130. Those can go to longevity myths.

NOTE: In Taiwan, Minguo calendar is often used. If you need help to convert the years to Gregorian calendar, see on this page: 年歲對照表.
