Today is National 401k Day. To celebrate, I&a;nbsp;asked a selection of financial experts about their best practices on how to &s;hack&s; a 401k.
Most people know&a;nbsp;the importance of maximizing their contributions&a;nbsp;and taking advantage of employer&s;s matching, as it&s;s basically free money.
However, employees who rely on their 401k as their sole means of saving for retirement need to know more. I asked these experts to only share their most unique tips and tricks that you may not have heard elsewhere. These tips, if utilized properly, can save you time and money and&a;nbsp;might even allow you to retire earlier than you may have thought possible.
