Probably. But, I'd rather work a tad longer and/or spend a little less than absolutely necessary than wind up broke in my last 5 or 10 years. On the other hand, I have to balance that fear against the fear of w*rking right up until my last day.

If there's one thing in my life that's missing; It's the time I spend alone
Sailing on the cool and bright clear waters; There's lots of those friendly people
Showin me ways to go; And I never want to lose your inspiration

In my late 50's (and burned out), I tried to go to a part-time schedule or LOA status with my former company.

They had no such "status" in the company and were not prepared to consider such.

I had two options; either continue to work full time or leave.

I chose to leave (e.g. retire). Not a bit of regret, and no desire to ever work again (for myself, or anybody else). There will be no "chapter 2" or "second act".

Life is good - finally .
