     I see what you mean by daunting -- MAN, they didn't even provide a 
     base of valid postal codes or states!  The maintenance program they 
     provided puts the city names in upper case (ought to look really good 
     next to mixed-case names and addresses).  Trying to find the 
     maintenance programs for all of the dependent fields has been no 
     picnic either.  I once wrote a package to track barges along the 
     Mississippi and its tributaries that I thought was difficult.  OLM 
     makes the latter look like a piece of cake!
     I'd recommend asking SSA for a reference that's using the package, and 
     ask the reference where they got all this data.
     Good Luck!
