I know it will be approved, but I will have received pay for 2017 in 2018. Do i need to wait to file?

Even if approved, you will not get money in 2017--2017 is over.  It will not go on a 2017 tax return.

No need to wait. Any payments received in 2018 will be reported on your 2018 tax return, not your 2017 return.
