Monthly statements and current holdings

I've been reading a little bit on online trading and was surprised that brokers weren't required to give you end of year statements for tax purposes until around 2011.

This raises some questions. Do online brokers give you monthly statements? Can you look into your online account and see your holdings and cash balance or do you have to keep track of everything yourself?

I'm sure they all do now or at least those that operate under US law... assuming you are in the US, that is.

Ameritrade for sure as I have them.
