There are rules regarding whether the property is received before 180 days or after; if received prior to 180 days, the Schedules need to be amended (A if real property; B if cash or personal property; along with C if one is claiming it is exempt).
Code section 1007(h) addresses this, requiring that within 10 days of learning of after-acquired asset(s) that would be property of the estate under section 541(a)(5), the debtor must formally amend the schedules to include the asset. Section 541(a)(5) narrows this obligation to property the debtor acquired within 180 days of the date the case was filed, if acquired through inheritance, life insurance death benefit, or a divorce proceeding.
So in federal court districts where the plan is silent, the debtor has no duty to report an after-acquired asset received during a chapter 13 case. If the plan states the trustee must be informed, then there is such a duty.
