Without looking it up, I advise againist getting a check in your name AT ALL! I believe the old trustee is required to with-hold 20% as "tax" Also, if you are under 59, there is the 10% penalty bugaboo. The gummit doesn't trust you to put it back into another IRA.

By letting the money go from trustee to trustee, you avoid any questions.
