What to do?

Keep working.

Are you 65 now or anticipating what life will be like age 65?... If the former the options are to downsize, economise, keep working or apply for top-up benefits. If the latter, it's going to be an exercise in life-planning.

depends on age you are now...

.. and actually loads of other things... what do you define as "insufficient"? Do you own a property? WIll you still have a mortgage? What savings/investments you have etc etc etc

Tough one. You have 2 options really. Live on less and/or earn more. Might be worth getting your arrangements reviewed. Paying a fee is best for this rather than paying huge commissions.
