Hi Anonymous,

Let start with .. Does severance payments have an effect on unemployment benefits in Montana. It depends, here's the statute:

39-51-2203. Reduction of benefits because of amounts received from certain other sources.

Montana does not reduce unemployment benefits if you receive a Social Security check. Here's the source: Click Nonmonetary then go to Table 5-17
