I am currently a GS 12 with a retention bonus. I am currently waiting a TJO for a GS 13 position, is there anyway for the agency to offer me a step increase so I can keep the same salary?

I doubt it, especially if you are changing agencies. After all, why pay you are retention bonus (or give you a higher step), when they could simply go to the next person on the cert. And, there are plenty of series who get a special pay rate until they get to a specific grade (typically when you shift to a supervisor position), and so lose money if they move to that grade.

You need to decide if you want the long term potential of the promotion or the short term cash.
