According to my knowledge, your letter writer can upload the waived lor onto the eras lor portal when the eras application cycle opens and you are given your AAMC ID.
So at this point, you could either ask now for the lor and then upload it yourself when you apply in the match (this would be unwaived).
OR tell your lor writer that you would be applying for match in a couple of months or next year and that you would be in touch with him then. (And keep in constant touch with him over the year). The pro is that it would be a waived lor and thus weigh more. The con is that your writer might not have a fresh recollection of you a year from now.
Its a judgment call for you based on how well your writer knows you. If he is quite familiar I would opt for the second option.

You can upload the lor yourself via your OASIS account on ecfmg. Steps would be on the ecfmg site.
