If there is an ongoing trust involved that remains active, then it could be generations.
However, if this is not a trust scenario, then 10 years is recommended.
If there are minors who must first reach either the age of majority (18 in most states) or who must reach a final age for outright and complete distribution of their share, in which case the time frame would be that age PLUS 10 years. Thanks!
