No, since this wasn't considered when the marriage was dissolved and the marital property settlement entered into, any severance would be your sole property and you wouldn't have to give ex any portion of it.
.
Now that doesn't affect the $1200 maintenance that you agreed to in the divorce though. But she doesn't have any claim to the severance.
