List of Finnish supercentenarians

This is a list of verified Finnish supercentenarians (people from Finland who have attained the age of at least 110 years). There have been six verified supercentenarians from Finland.[1] The oldest person ever from Finland was Maria Rothovius, (October 2nd, 1887 - June 17th, 2000) aged 112 years 259 days.[2] As of 5 February 2015, there are no verified living supercentenarians in Finland; but there is 1 unverified: Selma Tuominen, who was born on 19 July 1903, aged 111 years, 201 days. All Finnish supercentenarians were born in a time when Finland was an autonomous state of the Russian Empire.

Living Finnish supercentenarians

Below is a list of the oldest living people from Finland. Those listed as 'verified' have been validated by an international body that specifically deals in longevity research, such as the Gerontology Research Group. Those listed as 'pending' have provided at least one document supporting the claimed age but not the three necessary for validation. Those that are 'unverified' have provided no documents to support the age claimed.
