Is the estate required to take a distribution in the first fiscal year following death?

No beneficiary was defined. A 401K and IRA have been moved to the estate. I believe that they will need to be distributed within 5 years. Fiscal year for the estate is approaching. Taking a distribution is proving not to be easy or quick.
