Pensionable earnings would be the income from an employer on which your pension contribution counts towards. So for example your basic salary and perhaps commission earned would be pensionable and perhaps an obscure allowance or a remibursive travel claim would not be considered pensionable as the pension contribution was not calculated on that.
