How long does United States Postal Service forward mail?

I Seem to have misplaced my mail forwarding confirmation letter...

I'm expecting a standard envelope, handwritten address, regular (First class?) shipping. I set up my mail forwarding july 12th. Will it be forwarded to the new address or does the forwarding only last 30 days??

    Forwarding last for one year. Just make sure to notify all people you are expecting mail from on a regular basis(bills, irs).

    Also, some things are not able to be forwarded.
