Own a land title, in other words, own a government enforced monopoly privilege to land. Charge people an entrance fee to access the opportunities provided by nature and society at that location. Get money for providing nothing in return. Unless, of course, you consider allowing people to use what nature provided for free (land) in exchange for economic rent "providing something in return". The more opportunity the land you own land title(s) to gives access to, the higher the land value. In other words, the more opportunity you deprive society of, the more economic rent you can collect.
Rather than worrying about welfare checks, people should worry about the hundreds of thousands, millions, and even billions that rich parasites mooch of society in that fashion.
