Two year pay freeze would really mean three

Federal employees' pensions are based on the highest three-year average salary (usually the last three years worked). If that figure is frozen it could mean smaller than expected benefits when workers do retire.
"People's high-three won't go up," Causey said.
Federal employees will "be getting a salary but their retirement annuities won't go up," Causey said.
A freeze could affect other groups of workers, he said. Federal pay is tied to the salaries of federal contractors, foreign embassy employees and Washington-based unions.
Causey said the freeze would have a "rippling effect" but added, "This won't have a crippling effect."
