S. Derrin Watson

S. Derrin Watson is an independent ERISA attorney and educator in Santa Barbara, California with over 36 years of experience in dealing with retirement plans. In addition to his solo practice, Derrin is Of Counsel to the Ferenczy Benefits Law Center.

Previously, he worked with FIS with their Relius line of educational programs and products. There he assisted in drafting qualified, 403(b), 457(b), 409A, and other plan documents and forms, and taught and wrote extensively about all aspects of retirement planning.

Before that he was the tax partner of a law firm in Beverly Hills. He spends much of the year traveling to present seminars, and in 2016 delivered over 75 web seminars.
