Unexpected ESA payment

I've been on ESA income related for 1 year.

My payments have been like clockwork every 2 weeks on a Tuesday. My usual payment date fell on the 25th so I got it a little early, on the 21st.

However, today I received a payment. I wasn't expecting one. It's not due until the 8th January. It's also just a week's payment, not the usual 2.

Anyone else had this? Anyone know why? I think I was awarded ESA from 3th Jan 2018 - that's the only thing I can think of but I haven't received any paperwork.

Thanks
