If an absentee is declared dead after advance insurance payments have been made pursuant to section 578.12, the amount payable under the policy shall be reduced by the total amount of payments made under section 578.12.
If an absentee is found to be living after advance insurance payments have been made to a beneficiary pursuant to section 578.12, the absentee and beneficiary shall reimburse the insurer the amount of the payments made.
If the insurer is unable to obtain full reimbursement, the amount payable under the policy shall be reduced to the extent necessary to allow full reimbursement. Failure of the absentee and beneficiary to reimburse the insurer upon demand for payment sent by the insurer by certified mail to the last known address of the absentee and beneficiary shall be sufficient to show the insurer's inability to obtain reimbursement.
