Yes. it's an ironman thing. If you aren't on track for it now, you can't get there. This time.
Assuming it continues, it's a twice a year thing -- June and December, in which, if you make even the lowest level Ironman that month, you will get a bonus of $X amount for each month you made Ironman. The amount of bonus depends on the Ironman levels you made each month and how many months.
It's a nice extra. My only beef is that they only give you about a month and a half to clear it, which is usually not enough time at the levels I play at. But then again, I also learned painfully not to chase bonusses. I play as I usually do, maybe slightly longer, if I can, but not at higher levels. In June, for instance, I earned about half of the bonus before the time period lapsed. That, of course, is money that I wouldn't have had otherwise, and is welcome. While it's difficult to not fuss about the amount I didn't manage to clear, I figure that goes along with poker patience and discipline. Character building.
