It's unclear what do you mean when writing "support". LibreOffice major version (X.Y, e.g. 6.2) is supported - in the sense that bugfix minor releases are made on a schedule - for ~1 year. In this time span, it is released first as "Fresh", i.e., not that much battle-tested, co-existing with "Still" branch (6.1), which was released 6 months ago already, and had received 4 bugfix releases to that time. The Fresh release gets own bugfix releases, and in 6 months becomes Still (="ready for enterprise rollout") - it's the time when previous Still version reaches End-of-Life. The newly-Still version will get a couple more bugfix releases, and then, in another half-year, will reach its own End-of-Life - which means that TDF will not release new bugfix releases for that version anymore. This, however, doesn't mean that one can't use it as long as one needs: we have a download archive, where anyone can get any version of LibreOffice ever released.

On the other hand, one can opt to get paid support from certified professionals - and the terms of that support (dependent on the contract) may include much longer support cycle.
