Default Complicated. My dad is retiring? Disabled before the age of 22.

I've been on SSI since I was 20 for schizophrenia. I read that if you're considered disabled before the age of 22, your parents can claim you as a dependant adult child and so on. I'm 27 and I'm still on my dads insurance and everything. My mom died 2 months ago and my dad doesn't talk to me really. He told me he got a termination letter at work, but then he said he turned in his retirement papers. He works at the US post office. He's a federal employee, but he has paid into taxes. If his work credits are going to act as mine when he retires, will SS automatically change things? Like will I get SSDI? Will it change medicaid to medicare? I don't know who to talk to about this since my dad won't tell me anything and my mom isn't here to help me.
