Hi Robert

Welcome to the forum, you might want to have a look at the following FAQ which explains where everything is

Welcome to Benefits and Work


If you use the search tab at the top right of your screen and put in the words 'profoundly deaf' there are some examples of other people who have similar hearing loss and have claimed PIP. You will have to scroll down to find the ones that may be useful for you. Don't be put off by reports on a case law that is also there.
