It sounds as if they have set it up correctly, but check with them to be sure. If they have not, it's now too late to undo the transaction/transfer as the IRA money has been moved. The IRS will consider the distribution as having taken place the moment the money left the old IRA. That's why it's so vitally important to ensure this stuff is done correctly before the transfer takes place.
