I switched one taxable account and two IRS from the old MF system to brokerage. There are some minor differences but they don't affect me. The transition was painless. I did it online and it was complete the next day.

The dividends from my mutual funds go directly to my checking account.

I prefer the consolidated 1099 that I now receive.
