Is this true for all Trustees (ie Banks, Brokerage Firms etc.)? I would assume so. Right?

Never assume. Ask, and get the answer in writing. Also remember that you'e not required to set up an automatic distribution. You can always keep control and take your distributions when (duing the required period) and whence you choose.
