IR ESA appears differently with bank

Hi!

Not sure where to ask this. 

I've been on Income Related ESA for 2 1/2 years and it has always appeared exactly the same on my bank statement...

"BANK GIRO CREDIT REF (NI Number) DWP ESA (then long digit that I assume is a payment reference)"

However, I've received a payment today (the amount is what I expected) but it's labelled...

"DWP GB FP LP FUNDI FASTER PAYMENTS RECEIPT REF (NI Number) DWP JSA FROM DWP GB LP FUNDI"

Any ideas what that's about? The only thing I can think that's changed is I now get PIP after winning tribunal. My backpay went in last week and says Bank Giro as above but PIP instead of ESA.
