The secret to building a bigger 401(k) 401(k) participants who get help from financial advisors have clearer financial goals compared with those who receive no advice from a professional, according to a study. Employees working with financial consultants also have higher savings, contributing 9.5% of their annual pay to their retirement plans, compared with 7.8% by workers without advisors. Also, 75% of 401(k) participants who receive financial advice claim they are aware of the balance they expect to have when they retire, while only 50% of those who have no advisors claim the same.  --CNN Money
