There might be a wall of death at around the age of 115 to 116 years of age. There are a few confirmed people who live past that age but it is a tiny number.
Only about one in 1,000 centenarians (people who live to 100) live past the age of 110. In 2003, the Gerontology Research Group estimated that there were 300–450 living supercentenarians in the world.
Jeanne Calment of France, who died in 1997 aged 122 years, 164 days, had the longest human lifespan documented. The oldest verified man ever recorded is Jiroemon Kimura of Japan, who died in 2013 aged 116 years and 54 days.
There are over 100 verified people currently 111 years or older.
Past the age of 114, there is 99% certainty that there is a different survival rate.
Effective antiaging or aging reversal medicine will be needed to get people living past 110-114 in large numbers.
