Your patent should be pending the day it was filed (not when you get the receipt).  However, to play it safe I like to wait until I get the receipt because this will tell you if you did anything wrong.

For example, I had a client that filed his own application but forgot to attach some of the figures so in his case he was not really protected until the date when the patent office received the figures from him.

Do I have to wait for the official filing receipt of PPA from the Patent Office before I can go public with my invention?

Kind regards,
P.S. Your advices are great, thank you very much for this site :)
