WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen will testify before the U.S. House Financial Services Committee on Feb. 25, a congressional aide said on Friday.

Yellen's appearance at the House committee will come a day after she goes in front of the Senate Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs Committee. Both hearings are part of the official, semi-annual appearances the Federal Reserve makes to update Congress on the state of the economy and monetary policy.
