Can you collect benefits and accept a severance after you've been terminated if you accepted the severance AFTER applying for benefits?

I was laid off last year and immediately enrolled the same day for unemployment benefits. I did not sign and accept my severance package until 20 days after I enrolled for unemployment benefits. Now, the Department of Economy Security wrote me a letter stating that I should not have been collecting and accepted a severance at the same time. So they are requesting over $3K back from benefits that I collected during that time.
