I looked through the link you provide and although I have not researched this particular retirement benefit, it sounds like the employer may be offering a supplemental benefit to the qualified plan. SERPs are funded by assets owned by the employer and may be lost if the employy separates before a certain age or for cause. But it cannot be part of the qualified DB plan for reasons I've given.
