The Referral program was announced and released at CitizenCon 2015 on October 10th, 2015. It provides a referral code to existing RSI accounts which, when used on creation of a new account, rewards the new account with 5000 UEC and rewards and the referrer with various items, based on their number of recruits, if the new account which uses the referral code spends at least $40 at which point the account becomes a "recruit". It is not possible to retroactively apply the code to an existing account.
The referral code and progress tracking can be found on the Roberts Space Industries website in My RSI > Settings > Referral Program.
