Basic members don't get stipends or monthly payments of L$. Your friend might be a Lifetime/Beta member - someone who has lifelong Premium status - but this was only given out during the very early history of SL, like 2003-2004.

There's no way to get Lifetime/Beta status now.

Is your friend really, really old in SL?  Way back in the beginning, LL was still experimenting with its economic model.  There was no such thing as a Premium account, but people paid for a lot more things than they do now (like paying a price to rez each new prim).  One of the incentives that LL tried was paying all residents a weekly stipend.  I believe that the few legacy members from that era may still be receiving a stipend, but I do not know.

Unfortunately you can't get it but your friend must have joined prior to 29th May 2006 and he has to log in at least once a week to get the stipend of L$50 for that week. From an archived post, it says the Basic Member must be Verified and I believe that means verified by a credit card not age verified.

 
Stipend

Stipends are a certain allowance of money paid weekly (on Tuesday) to residents in L$. Until May 29, 2006, Basic Accounts residents would receive L$50 per week but new basic account residents born/created after this date no longer receive a stipend. Those basic accounts that still receive a stipend are required to login at least once a week to receive the stipend for that week. Premium Accounts created before July 21st, 2006, receive a weekly allowance of L$500 and do not have to login to receive their stipend. Any Premium account created after July 21st but before November 1st receives L$400 per week, while Premium accounts created after November 1st receive a stipend of L$300 per week.

Stipend Amounts

The table below details what weekly stipend will be given to Basic and Premium accounts which were created within the dates specified.

Account created within Basic Premium
(unknown) - 2006-05-28 L$50 (*) L$500
2006-05-29 - 2006-07-20 L$0 L$500
2006-07-21 - 2006-10-31 L$0 L$400
2006-11-01 - current L$0 L$300

(*) - Per weeks on which the account is logged in.

Previously, resident stipends would recieve bonuses from things like ratings (given by others) and some leader board standings (such as amount of calling cards collected).

More information from Second Life Wikia::

 

Basic Account

There are two different account types in Second Life that one can sign up for. The first basic account on a credit card is free, all other basic accounts put on that card are $9.95 (one time fee). Additional accounts also have a free 7-day trial during which the account can be cancelled. A basic account can enjoy the usual benefits of being a resident. However, they can not own land nor do they get a stipend. They do get a L$250 "sign up bonus" paid on first login.

While basic accounts can not buy or own land they can rent land or shop space from other residents. There are also open markets where anyone is allowed to sell items for free without paying rent. Building, scripting, etc. can be done in sandboxes and creations can be saved to inventory. However, for creations to have a permanent place in-world, rent land or upgrade to a premium account and buy land.

Before 5/29/06, basic accounts received a stipend of L$50 per week they logged in. This stipend was removed in hopes of deflating the rising economy. All basic accounts created before 5/29/06 still receive the stipend as they did before, but all basic accounts created after the date will not receive a stipend.

Just open a support case and ask for free monthly lindens, since noone knows about it no one does it, but if you ask they will, cause they got tons to spare.
