>> I would think another reason why so few reach $1 million is that they roll over their 401ks instead IRAs when they leave their employer. <<

Yep, I did this when I left my first employer in 1999. If the current market value of that rollover IRA were added to my current 401K balance it would still be over 40% of the combined total. I doubt I could ever reach $1M with just my current 401K but if I added the value of that rollover IRA (with no other commingled funds) there's a chance a decade or two down the road.
