I've had tinnitus most of my life. Now that I'm retired I thought that aids might help. Well......they didn't help me at all.

That said, if you haven't visited a doctor to find the cause of your tinnitus then that must be the first step before buying aids of any kind. Ringing in the ears can be a sure sign of tumors or some other medical problem.

There is no single rule of thumb.

I have tinnitus in both ears and hearing loss in one ear in the middle/conversational registers. My doc told me that he would fit me with a hearing aid if I wanted, but people with my pattern of hearing loss generally find that hearing aids drive them nuts. True, a hearing aid would boost the middle register, but it would also boost sounds like doors closing that I can hear just fine.

You need to get some advice targeted to you.
