I'm a GS 11 step 10.  If I'm promoted to a GS 12, how does the two step promotion rule work since I'm already a step 10?
 
Thanks.

Two-Step Promotion Rule

The two-step promotion rule states that a GS employee promoted to a position in a higher grade is entitled to basic pay at the lowest rate of the higher grade that exceeds his or her existing rate of basic pay by not less than two step increases of the grade from which promoted. The two-step promotion rule must be applied using one of two methods--the standard method or the alternate method.

I was an 11/10 and went to a 12/6 after completing my year. 11/10 pays falls between a 12/3 and 12/4 pay. The 2 step rule will bump you to a 12/6.

When at the step 10 level and promoted;

1. Add 2X the within grade amount increases
2. Go to the new grade level and see what 2 steps you fall between
3. Move to the higher step
 
If your pay scale does not show the "within grade amounts", you need only subtract the GS-11 step 9 pay from the GS-11 step 10 pay. This would equal the "within grade amount".

I think you have to go to the base table http://www.opm.gov/oca/11tables/html/gs.asp
That chart shows the WGI. The WGI for GS 11 is 1676 (x2 = 3352)
 
Looks to be GS 12 / 6
