I had a conversation with Congressman Mike Pence R-Indiana about this within the last year. He says that he has investigated it and that it is false. He offered to show proof via his check stub that he gets, showing that he pays into FICA.
However, he did say that there a few (less than 10) that ARE under the program mentioned because of their years on the hill.
You can look at SNOPES and it has this listed as being false also.

years of their lives.
