Financial "experts" want to give strictly analytical advice.

Real world advice.

If you like your job, and you enjoy going to work every day - keep working.
If the above is true AND you get a fat paycheck - keep working, that's even better.
Or, if you have some big bills, a big mortgage, and need the money - keep working.
Or, if you are suddenly retired and all you do is stare at your spouse all day. Better keep working.

Good jobs give you health insurance, a nice paycheck, vacation.
And if you're in your 60's, it's probably the highest paying gig you'll have... It's all downhill from there. And the young ones want to push you out.

70 isn't that old anymore. Lots of 70ish types hobbling around at the BMW rally.
