I'd like to thank all for the replies. To clarify a question asked:

Is there any particular reason why the distributions have not taken place in the last 20 months?

Things are moving a little slower than everyone would have anticipated / hoped. Basically my mother passed away 7 months prior to Dad. Assets were split between them with Mom being heavy on cash and house and leaving Dad very cash poor but with sufficient assets(stocks). I couldn't justify selling stock at losses to pay some outstanding bills and felt if I could stall a year the market climate might improve. Fortunately it has (somewhat).

Again - thanks for the quick responses and information.
